Pros. very fast and stable. Beginners might find this plane too twitchy. (very responsive) Inverted flying is very fun and much easier than the P51 or T28. The red paint scheme and white and blue underside is beautiful in the sky.
Cons. the only thing i don't like is the foam spinner, and wheel pants, they get easily damaged, the rest of the plane is rock solid.
The only things I needed to change after getting at least 100 flights:
2 Props (I use the rubber spinner from the 4site)
Make sure you have Foam safe CA, I had to use some on the bottom of the rudder so theres no wiggle. I also broke the elevators, easy fix with CA.
Thhis is my high speed cruiser. The wings have no stress marks, its really tough I've done cart wheels. I really like the shape and color of this plane.
The Pole Cat is something else altogether. It's large wing area and ample power pulls it up with authority. After a few rounds over the small (50'x90') yard I was ready for the fun stuff. Snap rolls, inverted dead-man spins, hammer heads - no problem. It is not at all like a big plane with that reassuring weight but it's as close as a micro, without AS3X, will probably be. After a very agressive first flight it slipped over the high yard fence and settled softly with space to spare. This is a very nice little plane.
Probably not for beginners though. It's easy enough to fly but like any low or mid-wing plane it rolls, dives and stalls quickly. You have to fly it all the time.
When I destroy it, and I will, I'll get another for sure.
I am Absolutly amazed at the quality and performance for the price. It looks great, Flys great, and is durable. It rolls, loops, and hammerheads really well! It flys inverted better than many Ultra Micros, but you need to give it a lot of down elevator to keep it flying inverted.
The color scheme is very easy to see and the power is there when you need it. It's very durable. I'v hit the ground pretty hard and sat it back down and kept going. The balsa models I learned with would never have taken this much abuse.
*This is not a beginners airplane* but if you have some experience and want something small to fly in the local park or street, this is a lot of fun in a small package! Wish I could give it 6 stars....
Wheel pants are useless. They broke on the very 1st landing. I pulled them off. As a matter of fact, I'm going to take the landing gear off. They are also useless unless you are landing on a smooth surface. I'v found that these small foamies get torn up pretty easy on the pavement. So I belly land them in the grass. Indoor flying and landing on a gym floor would probably work very well.
Plane is fast, responsive and fun. I'm trying to teach myself 3D flying to see if I like it. This is an inexpensive way to try.

I got this for my son who has flown the T-28 UM and the P-51 UM. He did not really like the flight characteristics of the Pole Cat on his first flight and damaged the tail. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Richard D. Guba
I'm not advanced enough to fly this plane. Very sensitive to stick control and easy to get disoriented. That being said, I think this will be a blast once I get better at flying.Published 17 months ago by Terry C. Kildal
I have a bunch of the micro flyers, and this Polecat is one of my favorites and a great flyer.Published on April 24, 2014 by Tim Loehrke
This plane is an agile little um! Very responsive and fun to stunt with. My primary reason for this review is to make the buyer aware, this plane is not made to be durable! Read morePublished on March 16, 2014 by Urrealpop
Not a beginner plane but definitely enjoyable for the novice, intermediate or even expert. If you are a starter pilot, it should be a 3rd plane after the UM T-28 or other aileron... Read morePublished on October 29, 2013 by Skytalon74
This is not a plane for a beginner. Very agile and fast. It handles better than I had expected and I would suggest any intermediate pilot looking for a rush fly this little devil!Published on August 15, 2013 by Gary Peterson

2 plastic wheels and the entire plane body is cheap styrofoam
