good deal......

i hate when nice looking, speedy looking aircraft are produced that dont at least have provisions for retracts.

Looks different at least.

Sorta looks like the offspring of BobCat and PushyCat

No doubt the 60LX will be right at home on the rear end of this cat too....

They had it at the Model Show in Chicago late last year. I remember looking at it. I thought it was a nice looking model. Seemed to be made well from what I remember. I looked for it on their web site for awile then gave up looking for it. Glad to see they have it on there now. I may have to consider that one.

I bet you could chuck the horizontal stab and cut the vertical down some and it would still be stable.

Hey p-80

My friend Serge has one...and has begun assembling it.
He's waiting on retracts from Robart,..but is considering putting maybe Hobbico retracts on it in the meantime. If you're wanting any kind of speed at all out of this plane, you need to go with a 2 stroke engine. Both Serge and I have Nitromodels Bobcats,( similar to this plane), and have experimented with different engines and props.

So far, Serge says it is going together easy, no problems, covering is good, very sleek airplane.
He has an O.S. 61 to put in it. This engine pushed his Bobcat over 100 mph, so we're hoping for more with the Flycat.

I will post a video of the maiden flight, hopefully within the next couple weeks.

hey crash pro thanks fur the responce that sounds like good news what type of clearance is there for the prop sizes ,also is the rudder controlable being i just dont like the two strokes i might just put a very large four stroker if possible and again thats what i wanted to hear that its a sleek.

i know you might not know at the moment but if you could find out that would be realy cool
