Gotta love the Parkzone Wildcat!!

#1
So my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday..... I sent her a link to the wildcat. It came in a big box and I put it together in 5 minutes and flew it for the maiden with @Samh. That was a month ago. I have about 15 flights in now, and I can say buy the wildcat! Everybody needs one in their hangar!!! It has a gentle stall. And gobs of power... I maybe hovered mine.. 20190202_140431.jpg

Hey, I've got one of those too, AND I got mine from a good friend on MY birthday!

It and the Night Radian are the reasons I now have added a Spektrum radio to my gear.

I agree, it flies nice and easy. I was surprised how well it slowed down!
Take her up to altitude and dive it with full power. Cut the throttle as it gets closer to you and gently pull back. It sounds like the real deal is crashing down on ya!!

Now that FT has newer build techniques they should make this the next warbird FT design. I LOVE the way the wildcat looks!
I LOVE the fat fuse! I have fallen in love with doing 4 point rolls and doing big slow loops. And a slight chance there was hovering. Not gonna say it didn't happen. The manual only gives you low and high rates. My medium rates are 88% on all. And in the manual it says the model needs no expo. Horizon hit a home run with this one.

That looks like afun one.(y)

I have the UMX Wildcat which is a great flier too.
I had some bad experiences with my previous Horizon Hobby purchases and almost wrote them off completely. I bought the 2s UMX Wildcat on a whim locally and I could not be happier with it.

That added with your post makes me want the larger version now.

Definetly buy it! I get 6 minutes off a 1300 3 call and it flies perfect! Just on high rates it has a nasty tip stall in turns. My medium rates is 88% all the way around.
