Default Anybody know who makes this plane?

I bought this plane at an estate sale. It has a Thunder Tiger .46 pro.
It runs and flys real nice.
I just don't know who manufactured it.
Anybody know?

That's a Midwest Strikemaster. It originally was a plan from RCM until Midwest kitted it. I had one of these oh so many years ago. Watch how much elevator you give it as mine had a tendency to snap at the top of a loop. I loved this plane. Once on a deadstick landing I hit a 55 gallon drum and only broke the spinner. Mine was powered by an OS .40 FSR. You are lucky as the .46 you are using is a great engine.

Enjoy it. If memory serves, there is huge thread here on RCU. I think there is also one on a giant version.

Do a search for Strikemaster and see what comes up. It's been a long time since I've seen the thread so I don't have the URL.
