Bobcat

Designed by Bobby Baker and first shown in public in 1984. Built up from wood from plans supplied by the First Strike, the fuselage is constructed out of spruce longerons and plywood bulkheads, resulting in a strong, light and inexpensive approach for the homebuilder. Powered by a Rotax engine. Finished in ceconite and dope. Centre mounted joy stick, rudder pedals, tailwheel steerable through rudder pedals. The wings are removable for trailering, set up time being cited as 20 minutes. Designer Bobby Baker notes that some owners have been using the Bobcat for spray work, however he cautions that the design requires some beefing up - seen as no problem - before the additional load is carried. Suggestions for beefing up the structure, putting the craft up out of the microlight category, are included with the initial plans.

Supercat

The Supercat is a strengthened version with a slightly shorter wingspan and greater performance capabilities.

Bowdler Aviation Inc markets plans and kits to build the Supercat single-seat monoplane, formerly developed by First Strike and first flown 1984.
The SuperCat has removable wings, taking less than one hour with two people, and fold up tail feathers.
