  • Has anyone installed the sport power system in the Tcat? How much does it increase the performance over the stock 3 blade system?

    Comment


    • Try the prop mod before you change motors. I did the zip tie mod on mine and it picked up the peformance a lot

      • One of the reasons I am looking at this sport power system it has a more secure way of attaching the props. I am not a big fan of the one 3mm screw holding the prop on.

              The zip tie mod was something that evolved several years ago on the FMS 1400 Stang spinner but I don't see how it could be applicable on this Tigercat hub.

                • I don't get it I ask a question about the sport power system and the issue goes to a zip tie mod.

                    How has your mod held up on the props

                    • WelI saved my pennies and I saved my dimes...
                      so I could buy a brand new —— Tigercat.

                      Callie and Motion are sending my replacement Cat items, so soon my fleet will be replenished!
                      i’ll make sure that the same gremlins that did in my first Cat don’t rear their evil heads on this one - ALWAYS CHECH THE RIBBON CONNECTION POUNTS ON THE WING!

                      • Here is a pic of my Tcat fuse after repaint just waiting on some graphics from Callie. After applying the graphics it will get a coat of matte polycrilic. Still have some touch up to do on it yet but its about ready to see the sky again!

                              That looks really great. So apparently you crashed this one? Can't tell. Are you sure that really happened?

                              • Yup this is the one I crashed, I had to replace the fuse since there was nothing left from the wings forward. I had to repair the wings they as broke next to the nacelles.

                                • One of my flying buddies at the club got one of these for Christmas and maidened it yesterday. It is a sweet flying plane and looks absolutely gorgeous. I got some photos of his maiden. I think I may be smitten;-)

                                  • Beginning of the mods in the tiger cat. Changing pilot to the park zone T 28 pilot. I like this pilot better since I am going for a Korean war vintage tiger cat and a pilot at that time we’re wearing a hard shelled helmet.

                                        You are such a tease. I guess I will make a pie while I am waiting, then I can sit down and eat it when you post your pictures!

                                        • Here are the pics on the repaint. Its not authentic to any particular unit, just wanted to make it mine. I think it came out pretty nice. I have named this Tcat "Phoenix" since it rose from the ashes.
