Just completed my Flat Cat. I haven't had a chance to fly it yet, but if it glides anything like it trim flights this ought to be good!:clap:
Four minutes on a B6-2? That's a GREAT time for a glider of that size. Great job!Quest Flat Cat was my first BG model as well. I will definitely second the comment about using a short delay. I core sampled 3x in a row using B6-4's (pod never came off). Model was completely flyable after each time (!). Bob Kaplow saw the third "flight" and said 'here try this' and handed me a B6-2. I respect Bob's advice, but I remember thinking at the time that I was sure it was an aerodynamic or balance issue, not a motor issue. Boy was Bob right...
The B6-2 flight had a glide of more than 4 minutes - although I had the longest walk I've ever had to take to get a rocket back, it still makes me smile to remember what it looked like to see that thing circle in the sky forever. (Thanks again Bob)
