I’ve had this kit ready – and packaged since July. Some of you may recall my Build write-up (here). I have had a handful of kits ready to sell – and had them at Geneseo and Muncie. I wondered why no one had even nibbled on them. Well, it turns out that I never put them on the website for sale – until this morning. Find it here.
This little (9″ span) jet cat is a very easy build and a blast to fly – it is my favorite. From the start, I knew it had potential, as I lost the prototype. My launch technique for my second one worked out to be: left shoulder into the wind, launch the model at full power STRAIGHT UP, and watch it zoom high and kick out, just right, at the top. It has a floaty, bobbly glide, maybe not in a full circle, but duration is good for about 20 seconds without lift. I have won one contest with this model and I won’t be surprised if I win another someday – or if it hooks a thermal and goes away.
The kit is a FULL kit – two 1/32″ balsa sheets, one 1/16″ balsa sheet, one 1/64″ ply sheet, two bass leading edges, two 0.005″ carbon fiber strips (for the fuselage sides), and one FAC-legal catapult. Also, you can download the tissue print design (as shown above) for free right here.
Next, I will have the Comet Pepper online soon!
