Thanks guys... I'm waiting for the vendor to get back to me... as the listing explicitly said that the plan was with the magazine, I'm hoping that its just that its ben separated. If not I'll give traplet a ring.

Serves me right for being a bit of a cheapskate! I thought I had a bargain at £5.99!

Looks like they've sorted out a cheaper shipping method since I last looked - only £3.50 in the UK now. thumbs up

But It looks like they only list back-issues for the past 3 years on the website - but give them a call, they certainly used to have many more that weren't on the site. The issue with the plan and article was January 2005.

After I ordered the plan I had the 'phone call offering me the build article, so I said yes (earlier information exchange with Bob)!

When it arrived I had got - - - - - the plan and - - - - the magazine (January 2005, which I had originally but didn't keep) with the free plan! So I've got two plans!

well I might be in the market Colin if you want to flog the magazine plan! - It indicates that they still have back issues of that issue.

Thanks Tim, £4 or so saved wink

I'm hoping to stock up at Cosford next week, so I'll just grab a few 1/4, 3/16 and 1/8 sheets to put aside for a PC (never thought I'd be building anything remotely PC but there you go).

Bob, at risk of admitting how dim I am, what's on at Cosford?

Having read that the Pushy Cat handles high winds very well I'm very tempted. However, I really don't like the high pitched screaming sound of some of the pusher prop jet types I've heard.

Is the Pushy Cat very noisy?

Well, it's been a while since I last flew mine, but I certainly don't remember it being particularly noisy.

Most of the noisy ones you're probably thinking of - like the Zagi - have the prop immediately behind the trailing edge of the wing and that seems to be the cause of much of the noise. You'll see the PC has the prop well back from the wing.

Mine wasn't too noisy... Nothing compared with resonating depron! And yes it is astonishing on a gusty day when nothing else will fly.

Good that's settled then. Pushy Cat it is. Thanks for the reply lads.

Tim, if you're going to buy a new RX and you're thinking of fitting a gyro, take a look at this special offer from Hobbyking - £9.89 for a combined RX/Gyro. I'm thinking it might save some space in a relatively small fuselage.

PS   I hope you've still got your Red Bull markings available.   Your Pushy Cat looks the business.

Ian,

Must say the Orange RX/GRYO unit is good value, but I already have a 401B Gyro, designed for a Heli but can be adapted for Aero on any axis, so I will be experimenting with this.

Red Bull schemes always available

Pushy Cat builders,

I have made a quick drawing of the formers for the fuselage, the PDF file is located HERE , it is at the top of my blog page just under the photograph of the three models.

If anyone would mind printing out and checking that the dimensions are correct that would be great as at the moment I have no printer ink!

Richard, on my printer the left hand side of your drawing doesn't get printed - its too close to the edge of the paper - so the left hand side of your 100mm scale is missing.

I rotated the drawing by 180 degs and now the right hand edge of the lower fuselage doubler is missing from the drawing. But now the 100mm scale is in full view - though according to my ruler and printer its (at a guess, about) 0.2 mm too short.
