Default BVM Bobcat instruction manual

Does anyone have a BVM Composite Bobcat manual in electronic format that could be emailed to me?

If not, do you know if you can get (buy) the manuals on their own?

I am looking around for a new model and am interested to see what you get for your money with a BVM jet. The BVM website is a little short on info and I would like to see exactly what is included, what is required during the build and how well engineered the model is. The manual would be the best and easiest way to get the info I need but unfortunately (and maybe understandably) BV doesn't appear to provide the manuals for download.

Thanks

Hi Siclick,

I thought the BVM Bobcat was still out of production, are you trying to buy a new one ?
Any news of it's availability would be appreciated.
I too would like a look at the manual if anyone would be so kind as to e-mail me a copy.

Thanks.

The Bobcat will be released within the next month or two-I'm promised kits in April.

Bart kindly sent me the manual but it is the older one. At least it gives me an idea of the quality of the manual.

Can anyone help me with a composite Bobcat manual?

Thanks

S 33

If you look at the ARF Bandit manual it's much the same (on BVM's site)

I do have a paper copy, but sending it back and forth by post seems silly.

The BobCat Composite is a great aeroplane, we sold a lot and many customers still have theirs and won't part with them

Hi Isaac,

BVM have published all their model control throws and CG info on their website. Including the Balsa Bobcat XL CG & Throws
The factory also moulded some small dots on the undersides of the booms at the recommended CG. (Although they may have been removed by the builder).

The BVM recommended CGs are very nose heavy. I have mine at ” behind the BVM spot and it is still quite tame.

Bobcats are the mostest fun models. Fast, slow, and robust.

No. I built mine and modified he wing to make the inboard section of the aileron a flap. Similar to the Composite Bobcat.
