The IPS Wild-Cat Boomer flys fine, but now it's time to build a Outrunner version.
My Slo-Cat Boomer uses a CustomCDR cool single and will go vertical on a 2 cell, so I'll use the same set-up.
On this one, I decided to glue the fuselage to the wing. So I cut the rx bay hole all the way through to the top of the wing and then I'll glue a cover to the bottom.
The bottom already has a step in it at the rear of the hole, so I cut a step in front, right where the slots meet. The piece you cut out will fit nicely back in as a door, if you do a clean rasor cut. I used a fresh blade and cut through the bottom hole to the top, But if I do it again, I'll push a stright pin through to the top, to mark the corners of the cuts and use a stright edge on top and cut down to keep the cuts clean from the top. Next I'l cut some small pieces of depron to glue inside the rx hole, to keep the hatch from going in too far. Glue them in before you glue the bottom on. Butch
