Two more flights with the CAT, still can't get that MDS48 to run with the throttle over 50% open. I pulled the motor yet again, sealed up the carb as best I could, reset the needles to factory. I found the low speed needle to be open only one turn, it should be 2 I hope this makes the difference. If that MDS still gives me grief I am going to slap in an OS46FX or an OS50 I have kicking around here so I can fly this thing with some power to get me out of trouble.
The flights were fun I have a little too much down trim in it which works nice it dives in on the flybys and as the speed picks up it starts to climb out to a nice altitude to turn. I find I have to use a but more rudder in turns than I am used to. On high rates it does a nice roll, not very axial, but it does it in a hurry. I tried a loop, but with only half throttle it was lacking and at the top did more of a flop making the loop look more like an apostrophe
Landings are very easy unless you try to do a high alpha without throttling up. I stalled it in on my last flight about 3 feet off the deck, the only damage was my prop and it bent the nose gear.
I dropped by a local printing shop that was recommended by a fellow club member and they say they can copy the plans even though I have cut them up into four pieces. I am going to get them copied sooner or later so anyone interested in building a CAT can download the plans once I get that done.
