The new Crack Pitts evolved from a very extensive design effort which started with the same formula and design concepts that created Chris Jewett's renowned Crack Yak. It then added RC Factory's extensive experience with F3P biplane design and production, and topped it off with Twisted Hobbys team member and design engineer Cody Wojcik refining the flight envelope and fine tuning the air-frame to achieve an incredibly precise yet extremely capable aircraft that we are positive is the absolute best small EPP biplane on the planet! In the Crack lineup, the Crack Pitts is the smooth, calm and stable aerobatic master to the Crack Yak's high functioning insanity, with the Extra Slick offering a feeling more similar to a smaller balsa 3D airplane. In comparing the Crack Pitts to the Crack Yak many have said the Pitts can feel like a Crack Yak in slow motion.
Keeping true to Twisted Hobbys exceptional level of prefabrication, you will find all control surfaces are pre-hinged, with laser cut control horns, high quality printing, unique rigid yet light weight EPP construction design, adjustable end links for ease of fine tuning and all hardware needed to construct each model. In addition to what you have come to expect from Twisted Hobbys quality, you will find new construction methods for biplane rigidity resulting in an extremely clean looking final aircraft without any need for external bracing and vastly improved durability over other EPP biplanes. Now with HD landing gear included.

30" Crack Pitts
This is bye far the best rc plane I have ever owned!! I have been flying for 20 years plus and have flown many airplanes. The design and durability of this aircraft are beyond belief. For me it is a 3d trainer and sport plane. It can fly slow and docile or crazy 3d aerobatics. Equiped with an Aura 8 just makes it even better. this is my 2nd one after 4 years+ so I decided to change colors and get rid of the hanger rash. the first is still flying!
Easy build, Great 3D flyer, Easy flyer
Build: started at 6pm. Purchased the power system, rx and servos Package also. Not use to using the contact cement recommended and It’s definitely way slower than CA glue but the next day it was solid. Completed build following day because of my late start. Build was straightforward and easy. Parts interlock. No issues. Did not install optional landing gear. Maiden flight: 500mAh 3s. 20% expo on Ailerons and elevator. Tons of power. Rolled within 5 seconds of maiden flight and immediately flew it into hardcore 3D maneuvers. It flies with absolute authority. Roll rate at max is blinding or as slow as you want. This birds will fly SLOW! 2nd flight was conducted by my 15 year old daughter. 500 mAh 2s Rates at 50% with 20% expo on all channels. Flies like a trainer. She did basic rolls, loops, wing overs and basic sport aerobatics. Downside: the glue takes longer to work with than CA. Slows down the build but build time was still just a few hours. Upsides: Great foamy, fast, easy build, super fun and easy to fly, does great 3D, is built tough. Daughter and I are giving it 4 thumbs up.
This plane is small enough to fly in small areas. It's big enough to fly in a little wind. It flys fantastic. It does all 3d maneuvers very stable and with ease. It is perfect for anyone . The epp foam is very durable and easily repaired if necessary. I've had several TH planes and this one is by far my favorite so far. It floats so well and slow with the correct CG and the 3s 450m batteries make for a good amount of flying time. Nothing better than a awesome stable flying bipe.
Crack Pitts M12, Yellow
Again I'm impressed by the detail-oriented design, the fit and finish of all parts. Went together as expected, looks sharp. I enforced the carbon gear struts against the lower wing by cutting and epoxying bamboo sticks in flight direction into the leading edge.
This is a durable easy to build plane. I live in Montana so right now I'm flying it indoors. I've always been partial to biplanes so for me this is a winner. I've been flying the Click for two seasons now and I'm guessing it will not get flown nearly as much now that I have the Pitts. Great job.
Yet another TH winner
This was my 4th TH plane, and I am yet again very pleased with it. Great design, excellent material quality, good instructions, and easy build, and a great flying plane. With a TH 1450KV motor, 600 mah 3S battery, and landing gear (with larger, ultralight wheels), mine came out to 8 oz even. I used a moderate amount of Welder glue on it, adding a little more for reinforcement where I though necessary. I did not attach the side force generators, because I don't fly only 3D, and they make any plane fly funky in regular flight, plus this plane does no need them at all. Knife edge flight requires virtually no rudder. Hovering is very stable, and almost effortless. Unfortunately, I couldn't do my maiden flights in zero wind and evaluate the flight characteristics. Lightweight small foam planes do not like wind, and they fly pretty unpredictably in even 5 mph wind. They shine when the wind is dead calm, and I look forward to putting this plane through its paces if I can ever get that kind of weather. I find that this plane, along with every other similar plane (except for the TH F-22), "hunts" for a heading (in all 3 axes) in wind. Control authority is excellent, and it does flies very slowly quite well. Another winner, and TH planes are all I buy anymore.
This is my second order after having the crack yak-55 for a few years. Will be back for more.
The best in class Bi plane no better on the market awesome fit to all the parts.3d machine,this is my 3 from Rc Factory love this model
