Airworld.com has the Cougar and Aeronaut has the Panther. See http://www.warbirds-rc.com/Store/an-pan.html Both are great fliers!

I forgot to mention that I plan on converting to electric.... haven't yet decided onwhat fan motor combination. ...... Are you familiar with the Ziroli Panther? ... I also was considering the Palmer Cougar, maybe next build...

Hi guys. Ray here,.... As I mentioned earlier, I have the Ziroli kit and have been working on the fuselageat the tail ,... the fuselage had been totaly framed and partly covered, I feel that I am starting to read a book from the middle and going forward, and turning a page and find yourself on a page 4 pages earlier than where you started......I had to enlarge the holes to fit the twin air bottles, from the inside, they now fit snugly and can be removed if nessary,.... further along I had to cut a slot in the L/G bearers so that the Robart L/G would fully retract ........ the steering arms would strike the bearers and prevent full retraction the drawing specifies a SpringAir Unit..... One has to remenber that this airplane designed in the early 1990's almost a quarter century back ...............will post photos at a later date......out

Hi Ray,
I used Hitec HS 5625MG on Rudder and Hitec HS 7955TG on Elevator. Hope this helps.
