my Cheetah
it's my first mid-power kit, but due to the tiny field i fly from, i'll be sticking to D or E powered flights for now, i think. we'll see.

the kit went together easily and seems pretty darn solid!

i'll put up a pic when she's done

I got pretty good results flying my Cheetah with a D12-5 from a small field, if you launch pretty much straight up. I'd go with an E9-4 for my first flight with an E & see if you need a little longer delay. I finally lost mine at an HP launch, back in Jan., but I really liked the Cheetah. It flies really well on the Econo Jet F.:eek:

Very nice! Can't wait to see the final version! Very Tomahawk-esque!

hoping to fly them this weekend!
the one on the left was supposed to be an 24mm E-powered alpha clone, but the fins are a bit out of proportion, the Aerotech Cheetah in the middle is my first real mid-power rocket, and the other one i call fade to black...it looks more red than orange in the pic, but it's really orange and black. it has an 18mm mmt.
