Hi Phil, no not yet, but I know I need to do it as the my last flying trip finished up with my Pussy Cat going in at a rate as I could not make out what way up it was.

Neither of them has flown, so it should be an interesting morning when I eventually manage to make the field.

Yeah - the Tuc is a nippy beast on a decent battery! Not hard to fly, in fact flys very nicely, but definitley on the fast side!

Pushy Cat flies the same. Not hard to fly, as the saying goes, flys like its on rails, but push the revs up and you have a rocket on your hands.

Well I have now flown both models. The little one was doing ok but just fell out of the sky. No idea why but it was a complete mess when I retrieved it, but no canopy. It sat on the garage floor for awhile as I didn’t know what to do with it, although jumping on it came to mind. In the end I cut the tail off and rebuilt the front end of the fuselage. The wings were good so rebuilt and flying ok.

The larger model just left the ground and flew away quite happily, but I have got confused with which way up they both are so some covering needed on the underside of both planes.

Great planes both of them, playing with making another of the larger ones.

A good result, eventually, then! Well done Tom! Enjoy it, it's a great model.
