       Keith Paskewitz, on the left, purchased a kit of the Raptor GS that was made from "EPP bendable foam" and was supposed to weigh 38 grams.


       Fred Tuckerman traced the original kit and made several cell foam knock-off kits.  Fred will also build the original plane and use a cheaper motor etc. from Hobby king, to keep the cost down.  Keith's plane has the original motor etc. in it.


       Larry Bailey, on the right, built one of Fred's kits and it came out to 58 grams w/battery.  It fly's really great and required almost no trim on its maiden flight.


       Keith built his knock-off of the Raptor with 3mm Depron foam.  He then cut out all but a skeleton of foam and covered it with Reynolds Wrap.  It weighs 32 grams w/battery.  It can do all maneuvers including the torque roll.

The Cobras R/C Club is made up of a friendly and helpful group of people.  We have a large grass field that is well maintained and is large enough to take off and land either North/South or East/West.  Not only that but there is nothing to run into when you are flying.  Itís all level open ground.  We have a map to the field so that you will be able to find your way.  The Cobras Field is on the west side of I-29 South of the Bellevue exit.  All but the last couple of miles or so are hard surface roads.  We also have posted on the Field the emergency number to give to the 911 operator so that the emergency unit can quickly find the Field.  That number is 54802. It could be very important if someone had a heart attack or other serious problem.  Be sure to come out to the Field and enjoy the food, flying and camaraderie. If you would like to show everyone your newest creation, that took so much work to build, then bring it to the Cobras Meeting for show and tell. The meetings are the first Wednesday of the month.  In January we combine the meeting with dinner at the Holliday Party.  If you wish to join the Cobras download an application form.
