Looking like it's doing 100mph standing still, the Racer Cat is an all things to all pilots model that will give hours of fun. The Racer Cat is a nice size and the attractive colour scheme is great for orientation. The more you look at this ARF, the more the quality impresses, superbly applied Oracover covering, the hardware is top notch, the cowl and spats have a deep laquered finish and the airframe is amazingly well built, strong yet light.
Designed for either a 0.60 two stroke or 0.90 four stroke engine, the model only requires fairly basic standard servo's and so offers a cheap, quick build. The wing is removable 1pc set up so the Racer Cat is easy to transport and the wing design is impressive, thin section with a light wing loading, the tailpane is also profile not flat sheet.
This model offers the RC pilot so much, capable of speed or gentle slow flying, impeccable manners yet fully aerobatic, good looking but durable, the Racer Cat 60 will make you smile and smile for years to come!

Modello molto ben costruito, si monta facilmente. Vola splendidamente: veloce, preciso nelle figure, sempre prevedibile. Sono molto contento di averlo acquistato.I love this plane, it flies really well, it is very docile and yet it will also do all the aerobatics you can throw at it. Yes the wing fixing peg is wood and wears against the frame, but that is a very easy fix, I simply sanded mine and then painted it with epoxy. I didn't use the fuel tank supplied, but then I never use the fuel tanks supplied with any ARTF - use a good quality one of your own choice at a size suitable for your engine. I have bought two of these planes so far (I crashed the first one doing a manoeuvre too close to the ground) and I'm just about to but a third as a spare. There is nothing bad to say about this plane, it's well made, is strong and takes a lot of punishment, and flies really well. I have an OS 65 2 stroke in mine and it is fast.Outstanding sport plane. Handles well, no bad habits and pleasure to fly, fast or slow. Great next plan after a sport stick or low wing.Super Modell sehr gut gebaut. Fliegt wie an der Schnur gezogen und absolut einfach zu fliegen auch fr weniger gebte Piloten. Ist sein Geld wert. Bin sehr glcklich mit ihm.
un molt bon avio. vola molt be. l'he motoritzat amb un os. 61sf. una pala 12x6 i benzina al 5pcnt de nitrometa. com a razer doncs no gaira. la seva velocitat es una mica mes que un calmato 60 normal...el vol es molt suau i no dona cap mena de problemes..es molt lleuger. les ales no pesan gaira. no crec que aguanti un aterratge dur... te pinta de trencarse al minim cop...el pes es molt baix.. s'enlaira en 3 metres.. el centre de gravetat es correcte..si li fiqueu un motor normalet queda pesat de morros.. millor ficar les bateries lo mes aprop dels servos..What a piece of crap, I do not recommend this, it is an extremely frustrating build, push rods too short, not enough area behind the fire wall to mount the motor, you need midget hands. The fuel tank is too small. Where the push rods extrude at the rear is too much of an angle and places pressure on the servos, where they have been positioned inside, you have to bend the rods to reach the servo. The rear tail wheel is a terrible design. If I could send it back I would and demand a refund. It is crap don't touch it!!
Well I flew the Racer Cat today and it flies like a dream, well done HK.
Only a few niggle's about the kit are that the Throttle control rod is too short if you have a front carb. The holes are not drilled in the firewall for the engine mount but the guide lines are there so it's an easy job to drill them.
The wing bolts are a little flimsy(4mm) I replaced those with 6mm one's and re in-forced the lower of the fixing for the Tee nuts.
I re in-forced the front slot for the wing with a piece of nylon sheet as well.
Also, best to use plastic screws on the undercarriage as they will break off instead of ripping the ply mounting out of the fuzz.
Yep my first landing was a little bumpy and the plastic screws snapped saving the fuzz. I must say that i'm very pleased with this aircraft which performs much like a Wot4.
It will coast ok on idle with an SC61 engine installed, very good value for money.. Thanks Hobby King.Well the kit has arrived today and looks very good, this looks easy to put together and the finish looks good as well.
I'll post later to let you know how it's gone.I have this plane with Turnigy dlux 120A HV Brushless Speed Controller (OPTO) and Turnigy SK3 Fandrive - 3994-850kv (120mm EDF) with a 10 cell lipo with a asp 8x5 and it give an unbeliveble sound and speed 220km a commond question is what was that yet plane sure sound like oneHm .... try again with my link:
