The Twisted Hobbys Crack Pitts is a 31.5" EPP biplane produced by RC Factory in Czech Republic. This Pitts bipe is a stunning 3D EPP foam version of the real Pitts Model 12 high-performance biplane. The TH Crack Pitts has the same superb rigid and easily constructed airframe as the other models in the Crack series – if you have built the similar-sized Crack Yak or Edge 540 models, there are no surprises here. The best thing is that the gear from those models is perfectly at home in the Crack Pitts too!

This is a quality design and use of EPP. My only minor misgiving is i broke afew of the lite plywood fixings as they are very brittle, but made up my own replacements.
It flys superbly with even my limited 3D experience being made to shine. On a Emax GT 2205/22 on a cell power it flys well but is far more sedate than a 3 cell set which i'm pulling 100 watts with.
Its a beauty to look at when static and just as good in the air. Buy one, you won't regret it!
best of the bunch

I have owned the crack pitts for a year and fly it 2-3 times a week flying about a dozen 5 minute flights. The model is superb and will fly any 3D manoeuvre you want and Q.It will fly in small spaces.
I would recommend using 3s batteries as 2s do not give enough punch for 3D flying.
I use Gening servos with a Jeti ESC and an Emax GT2205/22 motor. Turnigy 3s 460mah batteries. All these have performed faultlessly. The model is very crash resistant and easily repaired with normal cyano.
I also fly the Crack Yak Mini, Crack Yak 55 and Crack Yak Big. All these models are superb flyers but the Crack Pitts is my favourite.
A great model and worthy of 5 stars.
