Will Hobby models were sold on line (Ebay) about 10 or 12 years ago. I bought a different Will Hobby airplane from them on Ebay and it was good flying well built ARF. I still have it and flew it recently. I don't have any information about the Pole Cat model, but all of their offerings were low priced for the market at that time.

Thanks. Was just surprised that I couldn't find much info on the model. Was your Will Hobby Model about the same size as the Polecat and what was your cost?

Thanks for your help.

I don't think Will Hobby models were in the market place for an extended period so they are just a minor footnote in RC model history. I don't remember what the Pole Cat was but the one I purchased was a 65" high wing, tricycle gear, trainer type. I was "past" trainers but needed an extra knock around plane and trainers work well in that roll. I don't remember the exact price but it would have been well under $100 shipped. (I'am thinking around $65) For a cheepie plane mine was well built, light weight, and a good flyer. For resale, if the pole Cat model in question is still new in the box then it is worth more than if it were built. Reason being, you can economically ship an ARF in the box, but not so an assembled model. Best guess at a value of a NIB Pole Cat might be in the $100 to $150 max range on a "Fleebay" auction. That's on a good day. Good luck.

Thanks.
I was guessing at about $100- 125 as new, and although it is new in original box it was not sealed, so maybe $75-80
