Bobcat .52

OS .61 FX with a tuned pipe. Have a deflector over the tuned pipe to keep air from bogging her down. Super Fast, Super Fun !!

I don't believe it is. This airplane is about 10 years old, I love it. If you can find one I suggest picking it up.

I would like to but I can't find one for sale anywhere. I have a Bobcat 46 I got from a fellow club member that he had crashed. I rebuilt it and repowered it with an OS .75 AX. I want another one!

A bit of time since the last post, but wondered if you could take a closeup of the deflector. Just on the last stages of a 52 powered Bobcat I picked up at a swap meet last Fall.

Would be very interested to hear from anyone who has (or have seen) a Bobcat 50 powered by a large capacity four stroke. Any considering powering mine by a Saito 80 turning a 3 blade high pitch prop.

Would likely be economical and quieter.

Please does anyone know if this plane can still be bought somewhere? Seems like they all stopped producing Bobcats and Falcons 120.... Someone knows a look alike which can still be bought?

Nitroplanes sells a foam verizon that seems pretty decent. Also the KeeCat is very similar and is still available sometimes.

I used to the Nirptroplanes Bobcat with a Tower .75 on it. It actually was my first fuel plane!

Flew it many times and enjoyed every second, with a 11x8 prop it radared at 117 i recall.

Fit and finish were classic Chinese ARF, horrible.

Didn't use any of the factory hardware. Everything was Dubro 40 size.

With a smidgen of nose up attitude when on the ground she behaves well on takeoff and the pop up issue is solved.
