Could I get some feedback from anyone who remembers this plane. It resembles a Top Flite Hot Canary. I could use any info that is out there from any previous builders or fliers of the kit. (Midwest) Livewire Beercat Thank You.......Dave

Designed by Hal DeBolt and kitted by midwest. I think that sales were disappointing as it wasn't out that long.
The good news is that you can call Midwest or go to their web site and order a set of plans from them. Dennis

I was lucky enough to find a complete one new in the box. So its sitting here, It looks as if it would fly real well. I like fast stuff. Just wondering what kind of animal I can create.........Dave

Theres a thread int eh 1/2 a forum right now with Bipe Flyer and Wild Fred designing a 1/2a one. Heck , Wild Fred has a Beercat Avatar here. I think he still flys his. It is a quite fast, grooving Bipe.

Hi Ya'll,
I had a private message from Andy, Bipe Flyer. For the life of
me I can't find how to reply to it, so will answer questions here.
Wing airfoils would be NACA 65012
Top wing incidence 1 1/2 deg. poitive
Bottom wing incidence zero deg
Stabilizer airfoil would be NACA 0010
Stab incidence 3 deg. pos
No matter size, airfoiled stab should be used.
Will the Beercat do well in 1/2A size? Beats the devil out of me!
But would feel it would be worth a try.
Midwest Beercat was a fine, excellent, docile yet maneuverable
R/C. Darn good show, OK?
Need more info use E-Mail OK?
Be good!

Thank you very much for the information Hal. I figured I'd probably need the airfoil on the stab. I'm sure that it will work as a A model.

Thanks again,
Andrew
