The kit has fiberglass fuselage, nacelles and cowls. There is a recess on the front of the nacelles for the cowls to fit tightly. I have designed this kit for ease of building. Two Sundays and it will be ready for paint and the radio hardware. The kit includes all wood and hardware needed except gear door hardware. Full size plans and a detailed construction manual will answer all your question about the building process.

All the kits parts are numbered and the number of each part is found on the full size plans. A description of each part is found in the kit inventory. The foam core wing is pre-slotted for the spar and the aileron servo well is already cut into the foam for you. The wing is not pre-sheeted but 1/16" balsa sheeting comes with the kit. The kit includes servo extension wire, heat shrink tubing and lots of the little detail stuff you need to build the Tigercat. It is a great flying plane and lands like a docile trainer with the flaps down. Two degrees of washout in the wing tips give a nice slow straight ahead stall.

ACCESSORIES NEEDED: Engines, tanks, motor mounts, extra servos, gear door hinges, wing covering (monokote , or .6 oz glass cloth), retractable gear system, wheels and collars, paint and glue.

The video that is available shows many tips on working with foam and fiberglass. You will be amazed at the stability and predictability of this airplane. It handles just as easily as a sport plane. Flying a twin is no different that flying a single. Even if the engines are off from each other a 1000 rpm you can barely tell it. The only trick to flying a twin is to make your engines reliable. I use Electrodynamics, on board glo and it greatly enhances engine reliability. This, coupled with the instructions on setting up and adjusting twin engine aircraft will give you virtually 100% reliability. For example, most pilots adjust the engine RPM so that they are synchronized by adjusting the needle valves. This is WRONG!!!. You adjust each engine separately until they are in their mixture sweet spot and then adjust the length of the throttle pushrod until they run in synchronization. This takes time but once done it should not have to be done again and you will have very reliable runs.


Weight 12 lbs. with 2 stroke .40s & on board glow
Length 54"
Span 64"
Wing area 736 sq. in.
Wing Loading 37.6 oz/sq. ft.
Fuel 10 oz. tanks
Radio 6 channel. 1 servo for all flaps, each aileron, each engine, rudder and nose gear, retracts, elevator. 8 servos total. Conventional servos will work for all applications
Retracts Standard heavy duty retracts work great. I recommend 3/16" wire mains. I use Spring Air but Robart and Rhom Air will work also.
