Came today included with my Cox Aracobra

Cox Flyer from 1988 100_1115

Hmm.......Four full color pages, scanned each individually but still each file too large to post.  But I did section out a couple of the most interesting.

You don't see a lot of these.  Does anyone have one?

I have a 1988 catalog too,
The part that intrigues me is the queen bee, it appears to be a prototype, with the muffler being indexed via the crankcase and the carburetor and intake manifold being different as well

From what I have read, the Queen Bee was not well received, the folks at RC Universe being particularly harsh.  Must have been as Cox didn't offer it long.

I got mine back sometime in the 1990's and have never removed it from the twist ties.

I received mine a few years ago for my birthday
Got it running a year ago and in my opinion, the people that talk trash about it are only partially right Very Happy

Yeah it’s seriously heavy, but it starts so easy (two drops of fuel down the carb then cover both holes and draw some fuel in while bringing in the prime), two or 3 flips and it’s going. I’ve done some carb mods to mine and changed the head, so idk if that makes a difference from stock, but it idles so so nicely. I once ran it for 15 mins straight at idle just to see if it could,
It absolutely did. And the sound... it’s great.
It might only get to 16500 rpm, but it runs great for being a cox reedie
I’ll have to take a video of it running sometime, I haven’t ran it in a while...
It’s going on a lil swamp buggy... once I finish it  bounce
