    quickie 500 type arf?

    The Scat cat is no longer available. Likewise the the Sonic 500 also seems to be gone! Does anyone know if something similar is available. I flew Scat Cats several years ago and really enjoyed them. I am not interested in the G. P. Vipers. The fuselage is too skinny for standard servos, and don't want a V tail. I have a good Jett .50 to hang on the front of a simple quickie type. My intention is to go sort of fast, not ballistic.

    The Shotgun Q500 is the only one available that I know of that has a conventional tail. www.darrolcady.com sells them here in the US. They are made by Bruce Dechastel in Australia. www.BigBruceRacing.com.

    RE: quickie 500 type arf?

    Take a look here ...

    www.matneymodels.com

    If you want conventional, build a Pit Bull or Zoomer. Glass/foam Easy build if you are not racing it and just want a good, fast toy.. either are hard to beat.

    Other suggestion is the new ViperDog. SEMI ARF you can use a stock Viper wing (and tail if you wish) and use the new fuselage.

    Pleanty of room inside for standard servos.

    Most importantly... reasonable cost.

    Matney can provide pre-sheeted wings for any of the planes too.

    I have a Doddger kit if you are interested or a built up Dominator with a Vtail. LMK if interested. Look on the bright side, you can even pick it up. Phil

    RE: quickie 500 type arf?

    Good opp for the Doddger kit, but I'll pass. I have ordered a Phoenix Models Sonic .25 low wing. I had one a few years ago with an O.S. .32 sx. It was pretty quick and flew well. I sold it to a guy who put a .46 in it and I understand it did fly. So, if I beef one up, why not stuff the Jett .50 in and see what happens! I should have it ready in 2 or 3 weeks. I can post the result if yo're interested.......JT
