    RE: Its Bobcat nice

    Well, I don't kow much about Nitro planes but i had often considered a Bobcat type. So at that price, Get one before they get sued. I think I will and stick it in the closet until I need it.

    RE: Its Bobcat nice

    I don't know, by the dimensions of the plane , it looks close to the overall size of the Phoenix F20. With that , i would consider at least a 60. Propping it right will be fun.

    RE: Its Bobcat nice

    I received a solicitation from a chinese company a while back, offering me a container of the planes.

    That literature said they came with retracts pre-installed. Im not sure what Nitroplanes has for sale though.

    The plane looks cute - definately is 46-50 size. A larger 60 engine is not going to fit very well.

    What bothers me is with the literature and letter I received, it is called everything from a Bobcat 46, Bobcat 50 to a Bobcat 52 in different places.

    Looks like the same plane though.

    Flyboy, Let me know what you think of this thng when you get it. Going on just looks alone is worth $125. Is it retract capable and stuff like that.

    Thanks.

    Well you know how those Chinese are. That Purple Voodoo was called a Dago Red. For $160 I took a chance and mentally wrote it off as a junker but turned out to be one of my better flying planes. This Bobcat, 46,50 whatever could be a good catch if the construction is good.

    Dang It! I was going to modify a DC F-20 kit to make one of those in a 40 size. Oh well, I think I will do it anyway

    RE: Its Bobcat nice

    With the sleek fron end and nothing blocking the prop, I would expect this to keep up with the best of the .40 size F 20's. How about the second annual "Flyboy Dave vs Razor.

    You know, for what it's worth, why don't you have us come up with a suitable name. Both for fun and serious. Since you can't use the word cat, guess "pussey" is out of the question eh? I just re read the description on this thing. I noticed "factory installed components." Could that possibly be the retracts Bob is talking about?

    I just ordered the yellow one also. Didn't like the 26.74 I got hit
    for shipping, Its coming by UPS Ground but figured if you want
    to play you got to pay.
