I've finally started my ASM Tigercat. Hinged and installed servos & connecting rods to the ailerons and flaps. Started working on mounting the motors and will decide on battery access/boxes soon. I'm going with E-flite power 60 motors on 6s, CC 80amp ESCs & APC 15.75 X 13 X 3 props cut down to ~ 14" to facilitate the ground clearance. This same power system gives me ~1300 watts in my H-9 P-40, so X2 should be plenty for the Tigercat. I've seen the landing gear kits on sale at hobby people for $199.99 + struts, so I'm awaiting one of those sales. They were $249.00 last week.

Stagger, what are you using for your radial dummys you mention above & where did you get them. I know that Parkflyer Plastics has some avaliable in the size I think I'd need. They actually turn out quite nice as my Bro-in-law put one in a H-9 Corsair. Thanks for the thread & info.

Rick
