The BobCat is an all composite molded
ARF that can be flight ready in a minimum amount of assembly time. It is medium
size with many advanced features of the larger
Its slow flight and
landing characteristics are enhanced with the huge flaps and generous
control surfaces. The BobCat Composite will do it all with less expensive 8 or
9 channel radios and does not require a gyro.
The BobCat Composite is the easiest-to-land
jet in our inventory - just watch them at the
Major Kit Components
A vaccum bagged, epoxy glass and foam
laminate with BVM laser cut internal support structure produces extremely
strong and light weight components. Our flight test team has demonstrated that
the BobCat Composite can take all the Gs you can throw at it. The
over-built, dual aluminum tube supported wing and stab structures are designed
to last. And, the boom/fin moldings include Carbon Fiber cloth for extra
ARFs emphasize strength, quality of manufacture and absolutely complete

Retracts Flight Operation Procedures
The primary fuel is carried in
multi-layered Kevlar tanks mounted in the center fuse section over the C.G. Due
to the large volume of the tanks (2.0L.), baffles are installed to stabilize
the fuel during acrobatics.
For 19+# thrust turbines, an additional 1/2 Liter hopper
tank is included. The U.A.T. (Ultimate Air Trap) acts as an air bubble
eliminator and final filter.
You can expect totally reliable 9-10 minute flights with
your BobCat Composite.
