Ziroli bearcat  "Rare Bear"
Here are some pics of the completed ziroli bearcat.
Final weight is 30.25 Lbs ready to fly. It took 13oz of lead added to the motor box to balance.
The bme 102 turned 6700 rpm on a 24/12 prop and is still running slightly rich.
The buisness end.
First flights went extremely well.  The bear is going to be very fast. It is also very stable and easy to land.
