Model Airplane News - RC Airplane News | Real or RC? Prometheus Pitts

In the December 2012 issue of MAN, (our Scale Special Issue,) we ran a Reader’s Report and interview with Patric Leis and his 42% scale prometheus Pitts. This amazing aerobatic RC biplane is so scale it looks exactly like the full-size plane and it is almost impossible to tell Patric’s plane from Skip Stewart’s Real Deal Show Plane. Here are some additional photos that did not make it into to the printed article, as well as a video (at bottom of page) that Patric produced for MAN.
