The BVM KingCat Returns

Feb 14, 2010 No Comments by

The BVM KingCat is back and

better than ever!

It’s big, it’s lightly loaded, it’s 95% built, it’s painted and it’s low speed capability allows safe approaches and landings. And, because it is so “easy on the eyes,” it’s high speed jet-like performance is less challenging. The KingCat allows a lot of new pilots who prefer larger models to ease into the exciting world of turbojet flying.

The first prototype was demonstrated in 2003 and since that time, there have been hundreds of KingCat’s built and flown around the world. With its easy of transport, stable flight characteristics and grass field capability, there’s little wonder why so many jet pilots own a KingCat.

For aerobatic flyers, the KingCat can perform just about any maneuver from the IMAC schedule. For the newbie, it offers very positive slow flight stability such that “learning to fly a jet” will be very easy indeed. Short take-off’s and landings, allows jet operation from most R/C club fields. Its large fuel capacity affords 15 minute flights and the externally mounted engine contributes to its simplicity of operation.

All new tooling and fixtures, combined with improved painting techniques and very diligent quality control measures allows us to offer you a better product.

Light wing loading and a high power loading allows the KingCat to operate at high density altitudes and from more confined grass field flying sites with less challenge to the pilot. When set to about 15 degrees of deflection its huge flaps produce a rapid lift off. At 40 degrees, they allow you to drag the KingCat around the landing pattern at only 40 to 45 mph and then drop it in the landing zone with accuracy using the throttle as your primary altitude control.
