F9F Cougar

It is one of my best flying edf airplanes, easy takeoff and landing, worth every euro. I have spring air retract, midifan and 7s at 2700g

F9F Cougar

Wieder ein toller Bausatz. Die Cougar fliegt wie bereits die vorher gebaute YAK 15 von Ihnen auch wieder traumhaft. Mein nächster Baukasten von RBCkits liegt schon für den Winter bereit. Danke Detlef

Grumman F9f Cougar

I’ve just built your Grumman Cougar kit and given it its’ first few flights. To summarise, I’m extremely impressed with its’ ease of construction, finished looks and especially its’ superb flying qualities. Many thanks!

Great airplane kit

I've been building airplane kits for well over thirty years and this one is one of the best. Wood selection is very good and instructions are well written. Lots of very good photos to go with it.
