The original “Pole Cat” was a modified Cassutt Formula 1 racer, owned by Ernie Prosch, which he showed from 1976-78. Flown by Bob Reinseth, it placed fifth in the1977 Gold race in Reno, hitting 216.65 mph. Shortly thereafter, it was purchased by the Japan Air Racing Team and was unfortunately destroyed at Mojave, CA on June 14, 1978.
Now fans of Formula 1 air racing have an Ultra Micro Series scale racer that they can fly just about anywhere. The lightweight moulded foam airframe comes with a striking scale race colour scheme and features the distinctive streamline cowl cheeks that replicate the engine cowling of the full-size exactly.
Designed with personalisation in mind, the Pole Cat comes with various decal options so the plane can be distinguish as it speeds through an ultra micro pylon race. Based on the larger scale Pole Cat that has gained popularity with the pylon racing fraternity, this ultra micro is as capable of sport aerobatics as it is at slow touch-n-go’s and it makes a great model for high speed indoor racing, or outdoors in calmer weather.
Available in a Bind-N-Fly completion level, the ParkZone Ultra Micro Series Pole Cat comes out of the box with a red and white racing colour scheme, full 4-Channel control, steerable tail wheel, and removable landing gear for a more sleek look and higher performance in the air.
It also comes complete with a pre-installed Spektrum AR6400L DSM2 receiver so you can fly without the fear of interference in as little time as it takes to charge your included 3.7Volt 150mAh 1S LiPo battery with its DC charger.
