Introduction

Designed by revolutionary aerobatic plane designer Curtis Pitts, the Pitts S-2B was one of the many variations of the S1 and S2 aerobatic biplanes. During the 1960s and 1970s, the Pitts biplanes were a major force during world aerobatic competitions. Still flying around the world, the Pitts S-2B is an air show mainstay and crowd-favorite. The Hangar 9® Pitts S-2B 50-60cc ARF brings this aerobatic showstopper to life in a classic-scale scale platform with true scale proportions.

Overview
