Another Grumman Cat? Heck YES!
When I learned about the new FlightLine RC F7F-3 Tigercat coming to market, I knew that it was going to be a must have for me! At 1600mm wingspan, the size is great being able to transport in one piece reasonably with a price that is pretty hard to beat for what you get. The truth is, the Tigercat has always been a favorite of mine. There’s just something about two Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp engines singing through the air while pulling around the skinniest airplane you can fit a pilot into that screams awesomeness! The cool thing with this model too is that it is in fact officially licensed by Northrop-Grumman and was designed from much of the original Grumman data. So, it doesn’t get much more scale than that; pulling the airplane from the box, there’s definitely no disputing the shape on it!
I hate to say it, but this is actually Tigercat #2 in my hangar. In case you missed it, a while back I put together a discussion on How to Setup Multi-Electrics and the subject of that article was an 82″ wingspan ASM Tigercat which flies incredible. Well, spoiler alert, this FlightLine RC F7F-3 Tigercat flies just as sweet! 🙂
