Aero,
Yes it has a rudder, the servo is mounted on the underside.

Maiden flight was made today and it flies great, it was also flown by Rich and Steve which allowed me to take some video and snaps.

I don't know bro. The pilot figure looks like a guy who's name would be Smitty or Smyth.


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Your getting to be one of those well published authors. Can I get an autographed copy?
The earlier in your career the more valued they will be later in your twilight years.

Went out again this afternoon along with Steve, he had a good few flights with the Whippit enabling me to try and take more photos.
Without a doubt this is one of the smoothest models I have flown, I am sure Steve will agree with me on this too.
I am hoping to get this one in Model Flyer as a free pull out, is this mag available over seas?

A few pics.......

In the UK, there is RCM&E (Radio Control Models &Electronics), which is sold in the states by Barnes and Nobles (and many other places) under the name R/C Model Aeroplane if this is the magazine you are talking about. This is the same magazine that had the Panther write up in it. If not, then I don't know where you would get the magazine in the states. It would probably have to be ordered from the publisher, which if it is anything like RCM&E, doesn't take long to get it.
