Success!

My buddy wasn't kidding when he told me that his own Thunder Tiger Bearcat park flyer was a sweetie with brushless power.

I took it with me this past Sunday along with some models I'm reviewing for RCGroups. I needed to get video and I thought this would be the perfect time to fly the Bearcat as well, this time with a computerized radio.

To be sure, it needed trimming, but once trimmed, what a fun and fast little plane. It still wanted to nose over on landing, but that was simply due to the landing gear being bent too far backwards. Once that was fixed, boom. Perfect three-pointers.

Was it worth the money? I think so. I could have saved ten bucks by buying the receiver-ready version, but then, what would I have done without the 27MHz radio system, brushed motor, gearbox and NiMH batteries languishing in a drawer?

If anyone wants the unloved radio and power stuff, please feel free to drop me a PM. It works, it's new but nearly obsolete and I will likely never use it again.

As for the plane itself, well, she's a keeper.
