Idea

Biplane Racing


Hilmar Lange and Lutz Nškel developed the idea of building biplane racers with a wingspan of 60cm. Hilmar chose the Howard Speed Beercat, Lutz built the Hot Canary and I made a Mongster. The project is in development. I hope we manage to meet and race this year.

Speed "BEERCAT" - second day of flight (2 min 50 sec)


Mongster Biplane Racer (1 min 49 sec)

That looks like it will be great fun.

(Whisper to Thomas. Words can not describe how much more I enjoyed the soundtrack on the Mongster video relative to the Beercat one.)

Interesting. We're these kits or scratchbuilt?

This is the Foamies (Scratchbuilt) Forum. There may be a hint there...

LOL. There was just a lot of detail on the Beercat. Wonder if there's plans?

Hilmar will make a plan for the Beercat. It will appear free on Modell-Aviator.de. And his plans are perfect.
Lutz will make a plan for the Hot Canary and maybe I will make one for the Mongster...

Please do make plans for the Mongster. I like the looks and the performance that your video shows.

I think you are right about the performance.
The Mongster will be the front-runner in the racing.

I just found this great page from Aeromodeller 1970. My father stored it in his Air Racer book that he gave me some years ago. And I thought it was an autonomous decision when I chose the Mongster......

Thomas , the Mongster looks real nice, but........ how does it handle the wind! One word: EASILY!

Nice flying, in those turbulent conditions.

Cant wait to see Lutzs' Hot Canary fly.
