Haha, nice picture .
I think the cat wants to take a ride in the T-38. It could carry the weight of the "cat pilot" easily, right ?

Also, what is the wing area ?

Andy,
As was said in Jaws, you're gonna need a bigger boat!

How are you going to pull that huge canopy?

Stab pivot

Just checked in - wasnt sure where you guys ended up with a final placement of the pivot...If need be, I can take measurements off of Thornton Aircraft's T-38 here in VNY, if you want to set it up like the full size. It seems like you guys got enough HD pics to get a ballpark, which is probably plenty. Strong servo, tight linkage, solid mounts for the servo, good internal stab structure...you should be fine. Just lemme know.

Soooo jealous right now. And previous poster said it - you got the bottleneck right! Curves = sexy!! (Just in moderation with the opposite sex!)

Wonderful work.

Sorry, gear is not beefy enough

Unfortunately, the gear is not solid enough for a "CAT-Shot".

You will have to be happy with this image alone.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Holy crap Andy! I've been following this for a while now and I still don't know what to say. It really is some beautiful work and quite inspiring to us all. Thanks for sharing.

P.s. You have quite the dedicated feline ground crew with the constant inspections and preflight checks.

I placed him in but he jumps out before I can snap the pic..Oh well, guess I will have to use the radio to fly it.

HAvn't weighed it in a few weeks but I think I will be between 30 and 35 pounds ready to go.

Thanks Phantom..yeah the cats look over the planes pretty close. One day awhile back I went flying and got to the field and when I tryed to plug in my aileron wire it was chewed all to heck. I have learned since then to keep all small chewable items properly secured.
