Here are a fewshots of the Electric TOPCAT I designed and built over Easter Weekend 2002

It is patterned after the construction of DJ Aerotech's ROAD KILL series of profile electric WWII fighters. I have included a shot of my P-38 for comparison.

Landing gear as per DJ Aerotech's "technique". It is slick.

Elevons cut out and pushrods installed. Uses pull /pull fish line on the nose gear steering. (Hooked to Elevon servos) I gotta mix the rudder stick to the aileron function, its hard to get used to steering withe the right stick!

The Electric Topcat (ETC) goes great on the ground!

This is a SONIC JET free flight toy, I converted to RC.  I had to replace the motor after I blew the comutator. It is supposed to run on 1.5 volts, some how a 270 mah nimh battery was too much for it!
