Sneak Peek Thunder Tiger Katana-45

Feb 01, 2010 No Comments by

Last week out at my flying field I was lucky enough to catch up with Rocky McCarter from ACE/Thunder Tiger. He had come out to test fly their new Katana-45”electric aircraft. This is a great looking plane that is easy to see in the sky and Rocky was able to put it through quite an array of aerobatic maneuvers. The flying envelope for this plane is outstanding and it is really an easy and fun plane to fly. Any aerobatic pilot is going to really enjoy the Katana-45.  This plane will soon be available, but before it is, here are some photos and information for you to check out. Stay tuned for some more exclusives from Ace/Thunder Tiger.
