I'm currently searching for a Pitts project or a flying model. I have seen many models: S1-C, S1-S, S1-D, S1-T, ect... Many people have called saying they have a S1-C frame but place "S" style wings on the aircraft. Does the 4 inches in length between a "C" model and a "S" model make a difference in the way it flys? Or does it handle the same and only fits taller pilots better? I'm 6' foot tall and 195lbs and fairly athletic. I'm trying to find a real good airframe that is ready for cover. I have talked with Mike Jones in Colorado and has been very helpful with information on his Pitts S1 short frame with "S" style wings. I buy and sell engines and radios so these are items I can find regularly. Is their any books on the Pitts that shows the differeces or what modifications are in style to compete in todays IAC arena. I have built a AVID Aerobat (tube and fabric) and I'm completing a Super IIs FT Glasair with a 220 Hp Lycoming. If anyone has good information for me I could really use the help. People that I have talked have been extremely nice and informative for a new IAC member. I hope to purchase a project or and flying example soon. I think that a S1-S or S1-T is the right aircraft but this S1-C that Mike Jones has sounds very nice and is close to what I'm currently looking at that is covered and was flying two months ago (Full comptition in Advanced catagory) low time (320 hrs) all mod's for $13000 ready for engine and prop. This guy is selling for a One design. Thank you for you help if you can!!!! Newbie, Mark Schrick 1397 Boysea Drive San Jose, Ca 95118 (408) 451-8126
