Red Cougar Pnp
I would like to know if anyone has a similar experience with this Kit.
Made by Staufenbien (now owned by Horizon).
First problem was probably my fault, I took PNP to mean plug and play ie. You just have to supply Rx & Lipo. There was no Esc in the kit. I did not expect to have to fit hinges bend/fit pushrods and horns. Did not fit elevator horn as there wasn't one. Ended up making my own. Wing went together well but did not fit the fuselage. LE location pin holes had to be extended, the threaded inserts in the fuselage are 18mm apart, the bushed holes in the wing are 17mm apart. Still working on that one. For some reason the aileron servo wires protrude by 300mm, cut them back to 70mm. With the recommended 2200 3s lipo as far forward as possible the CG is 60mm, recommended is 55mm, there is not much room at the front to get lead in. I do not think there is enough room for a bigger lipo. So far I reckon to have spent 6+ hours on this kit & still going. PNP? Finally has anyone managed to get help from Horizon recently? Their UK phone does not work. I have sent 6 emails asking for a elevator horn to their EU address over a period of about 10 days without reply. I hope it flies better than it has gone together.
