NOTE: While the Cardinal we have produced contains an after market turbocharger installation, these charts are for the normally aspirated version, and no charts are available for the turbo version. Plan your flights using these charts, then take advantage of the added performance the turbocharger offers.

Texture Template for use with Text-o-Matic

Repaint your Cardinal in any paint scheme you desire with this easy-to-use Photoshop ® texture template, then create a new aircraft sporting it using the ever-popular Text-o-Matic! This template is a Photoshop document, but should also work with later versions of Paint Shop Pro. It was saved using Photoshop 4.0, and this should ensure compatibility with newer versions of Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro.

Simply right click on the image and "Save Picture As" to where you wish on your computer. You can then cut out the bird from the white background, re-size, and use with your livery.
