Well I was out flying the Wild-Cat Boomer a few days ago, screwing around close to the ground and smacked it in a couple times. Then I noticed it was flying kinda twitchy, so I brought it in for a check-up. The plastic tube/guide, that the elevator pushrod goes through, broke loose from its spot on the vertical stab. So when I got home and fixed it, I made sure to add a bit more epoxy around it.
I've got the outrunner Wild-Cat Boomer 95% done. Just have to solder up the ESC and solder up some 3 cell batts. I picked up some 700mah 20C cells to handle the 7.5 amp draw.
I also started on a Walkera 180 version, and I'm helping a couple other guys build theres.
I just took the IPS version out before dark, infront of my house. It still amase's me that it will fly at 50% power, on a IPS motor, and loop and stall, in less than 10 ft above the ground no problem. And on a 340mah batt, I get over 20 minutes of flight time. Not to bad! Butch
