"You don't fly this airplane," says Aviat Aircraft™ Company about its envelope-pushing Pitts® S-1S. "You wear it." The aerobatic biplane's proven design and highly responsive controls have made it a potent competition aircraft for decades. Due to its overwhelming popularity, E-flite® has brought back the UMX™ Pitts® S-1S with updates and upgrades that make it the easiest to fly, most convenient, and most affordable Pitts model yet! It now includes optional-use SAFE® Select, is both 2S and 3S compatible, and provides real-time battery voltage telemetry to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters. Because of its ultra-micro size, the UMX Pitts® S-1S can be flown indoors in gymnasiums and other suitable spaces, or outdoors in many yards, parks, and sports fields. The E-flite® UMX Pitts® S-1S makes it easier than ever for a wide variety of pilots to enjoy an unmatched biplane flying experience!
This updated and upgraded version of the E-flite® UMX™ Pitts® S-1S is the most affordable, most convenient, and easiest to fly Pitts® RC model yet. Exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® keeps it smooth and optional-use SAFE® Select makes it more stable than ever before. Plus, the factory-installed brushless power system now features a 2S- and 3S-compatible outrunner motor. Install 2S 280mAh batteries for performance similar to the original model or use 3S 300mAh batteries for more speed and unlimited vertical performance. The control unit/flight controller includes an ESC and Spektrum™ receiver that provides real-time flight battery voltage telemetry to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters while you fly. Constructed of advanced EPS material for a lightweight yet durable airframe, this Bind-N-Fly® Basic model arrives 100% factory-assembled. Just bind it to your 5+ channel DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter and you can be flying in minutes! The ultra-micro size is perfect for flying indoors in gymnasiums and similar large spaces, or outdoors pretty much anywhere — yards, parks, sports fields and beyond. Experience the thrill of piloting one of the most celebrated aerobatic biplanes of all time with your own E-flite® UMX Pitts® S-1S!
This UMX™ Pitts® is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch to make this the easiest to fly Pitts® yet!
The UMX™ Pitts® S-1S is equipped with a control unit/flight controller that includes an ESC and Spektrum™ receiver that provides real-time flight battery voltage telemetry to compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.
The factory-installed brushless power system features a 2S and 3S-compatible outrunner motor. This upgraded power system setup delivers similar performance to the original when flown with 2S 280–300mAh batteries (a suitable JST-RCY to JST-PH adapter, including SPMXCA327, is required), or more speed and unlimited vertical performance when flown with 3S 300mAh batteries.
The UMX Pitts® S-1S arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box! It's equipped with industry-leading Spektrum™ 2.4GHz technology that binds to your 5+ channel DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter so you can be flying within minutes of opening the box.
Construction with advanced EPS material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe. In the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can't repair them, a full line of replacement/spare parts is readily available.
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!
This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes it feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.
If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required.
