Picked this one up used here on RCGroups. Assembly was far too easy, tape the tail feathers on, and two screws for the main wings. Ready to go! Looking to maiden this one on Friday morning. I don't normally do hand launch planes, so it should be fun

Maiden Flight


Did my maiden flight this morning for this one. Using Admiral 3S 1300 in the stock location, she flew fantastic!! I normally don't fly hand launch, so it was nice to find an easy launch it rolled a bit to the left and then up made I easy to control on launch. She flies amazing, I was quite surprised, very agile and very scale flying characteristics. Landing is a breeze, I come in with some altitude and then cut the throttle, glide her down and full back pressure as I skim across the grass until she plops herself down. Great flying plane, I took her up for a second flight, and much the same as maiden, fun to fly! The wind was increasing steadily and she handled it without issue!

Wildcat


This is a fantastic flyer. It was one of HH's most popular planes, but they retired the design. It is a super tight flyer and very easy to land. I have lots or planes, but always still fly this one. Mine has numerous flights without a scratch on her.
