    I am getting the urge to get another bipe. I see the PAU Ultimate is really cheap....... How do those fly compared to say a Beast or Viking? Binge watching youtube videos of rc planes during my holiday week off of work is driving me nuts. Any advice? I am going to get something.

    I'm partial to the look of the Pitts Model 12, but don't own any of the ARFs . Surely someone here will have thoughts.

    Beast
    Viking
    Mamba
    Checkmate

    Watched a video of the Mamba yesterday...

    The mamba is definately sweet. They fly good with the Aura gyro.

    Stay away for the checkmate looks good but not a good flyer, my flying buddy had one I flew it several times if just fly around and make loops great plane touch the rudder and it gets crazy. It has so much coupling from rudder in all directions.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    I want another "BIG" bipe too. Maybe a 40ish%'er. But then anything with a round cowl would be awesome. LOL... LOVE my 260 a heap....But them darn round cowlers have got me hooked.

    Soooo......have you decided yet? I find lately I'm having a hankering for another bipe too. Guess I should get the one I have completed and flown a few times before I decide I need another two winged plane.

    Hey Rob,
    I only have one word of advice for your round cowl fetish. . . . . . . VIKING ! ! ! ! ! :spongebob:

    Actually, the real Viking is just the original Pitts Python, that was sold to the Swedish Aerobatic team and repainted. They also changed the rudder a little bit as well.

    Cannot argue with the Viking recommendation. The Pitts Model 12 is a magnificent aircraft!

    Speaking of round cowl biplanes, I found a neat thread the other day...Super Stearman.

    I must admit that is one beautiful plane. And I have seen a few fly and they do fly nice I could live with one in my Hanger. But I would want a trailer big enough to put in in one piece.

  10. Whatever you decide on by all means get another bipe. That Stearman looks pretty tempting.
