Apparently these are shipping now....

I remember seeing Tony Bennetti fly his years ago.

It is ".61" powered, but it is a smaller aircraft. Back then it needed a .60. Built light, a real good .46 or .50 would haul it around quite nicely.

Bob:

Wonder what she would do with a OS 90 VRDF? Yea, still have two hiding in the motor cabinet waiting for something approporiate. Dont want to break 200, just a little sneaker for the club pylon open event. May have to resort to something like this this year as the gang is on my butt even with a Matney animal zoomer and jett 50 + black pipe. Wonder if the added 1 pound in repair of a stupid landing is hirting things? Was 4.5 #, now 5.6#. Guess I will have to lean on the needle a little more. Thanks for the info. ENJOY Bro 119

I remember the Troublemaker. It was an old fast pattern ship. With one of the old .60s it would hit 100mph. On the site, I also saw the Banshee, which was noted for being fast, and the Eyeball, a good knife edge plane.

A modern ARF in the same vein is the Cermark Javelin. I reviewed it for RCR and used a Mag .52 with a 10-7 APC and it was fast. With retracts and a better engine, I imagine it would really be speedy. It has a thin wing, inverted & cowled engine and is very clean. It's a good kit and easy flying plane. If you have a short field, it does not like to slow down so you have to plan the landing or it will float on by you.

The wing looks like a Super Kaos.

Yeah, pretty much. Designed around the same time. Troublemaker wing is thinner and has a bit of sweep to it.

Since it's a 60 size hole, why not stuff the 90L in it for some extra grin factor?
