Pitts Special "Lil Stinker"

Model Airplane News's Pitts Special "Lil Stinker"

ABOUT THE AIRPLANE
Curtis Pitts began the design of a single-seat aerobatic biplane in 1943–1944. The design has been refined continuously since the prototype's first flight in September 1944, however, the current Pitts S2 still remains quite close to the original in concept and in design.
Several of the aircraft that Curtis Pitts built had a picture of a skunk on them and were called "Stinkers". After she bought it, aerobatic performer Betty Skelton called the second aircraft that Curtis built, "Lil' Stinker". The prototype S-2, which was the first two-seat Pitts, was "Big Stinker", the prototype Model 11 (later called S1-11B) was "Super Stinker", and the prototype Model 12 was the "Macho Stinker". Betty Skelton's Lil Stinger now hangs in the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Please note center photo above.

ABOUT THE MODEL
The control line model designed by Walter Musciano depicts Betty Skelton's "Lil Stinker" noted above. The model construction is typical Walt Musciano - very strong then beefed up some more. Constructed according to Musciano's plan the completed model will be capable of "planting" an engine and usually suffer only cosmetic scrapes. His model is powered by a Bantam .19 and notes that an engine up to a .33 can be used. Way back, about the time dirt was invented I built many a Musciano designed control line model and never regretted building any of them.

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Pitts Special "Lil Stinker" plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.

Postage:

Tracking:

Tracking is available and is recommended.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
