I was thinking of getting this power setup would it work? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__10005__GPS_7_Micro_Brushed_power_system_combo_.html?strSearch=GPS-7%20Micro%20Brushed%20pow

One other question can the esc in this combo plug directly into the futaba micro receiver I mentioned earlier??

Those would be pretty bad...look up "hobbyzone champ motor" on ebay, that is what works best.
Crashing is part of learning. If you don't have any, it's like getting an F
Hey, I'd really appreciate it if you checked out my youtube or even subscribed!

I just build an indoor micro 3D plane and flew it at an rc meet the past weekend. I got a pretty good insight of what works (from the pro indoor guys) and what doesnt (I showed them mine) well jokes aside, mine worked pretty well, but it ended up being too heavy for its size (450mm span, 65grams weight) and a bit wobbly to fly (wing needs a few cm more span to tame it down). I wasnt able to hold it hovering, but it wasnt for lack of power, its got 2:1 thrust to weight ratio. Well Ill post more detailed info, pick, flight video, links and parts when I get home from work.

Ya the lighter the better. Look up all4smallrc on the forum. He has a lot of info on small planes.

Oh right,assuming you rather build your own than buy ARF, what material do you use/ have access to? I build mine from 3mm deron which Id recommend for small micro planes. If you choose epp youll need sh*tloads of reinforcement.

Thicker materias are too heavy to make a proper micro plane out of, thinner depron might prove to be too weak without reinforcing (I only have 3mm and 6mm, no experience with 2mm or 1mm). Only reinforcement I needed for my plane was 25cm long piece of 1,5mm carbon fiber rod in the main wing. But if you go 500mm+ youll need more supports (wing struts) for the main wing.

So can brushed esc connect directly to a regular receiver??

I have 3 mm depron or I was thinking I could use a thinner piece of depron with carbon fiber spikes to reinforce the fuselage and carbon strips to reinforce the wing

Here is the plane Im talking about, simple mini 3D:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1003815&highlight=simpl mini 3d

I build mine shorter span, ~45mm, with 2gram FrSky 5ch receiver, 7,1gram C-10 outrunner, 1,7gram servos (x3), 10amp ESC red prick (way overkill), and 180mAh 2S lipo. I used epoxy as my main glue and it might have added to the total weight. All up the weight was about 65-70 grams.

Now if Id start again, Id go with the original plan, AP-05 (5,4gram outrunner) motor, 6amp ESC, 2x1,7gram servos and ~2-3gram servo for ailerons (its twice the job), 180mAh 2S lipo. Also if you have foamsafe CA or other lightweight glue you are accustomed with you might actually have more wingarea and LESS weight than mine. Also I might suggest you add about 1-2cm more wingspan to both wings (total of 52-54cm). You would most like end up with very capable plane, that should be able to slow down way more than my plane does.

I saw some very impressive flying there but most guys had more bigger 70-80cm span planes with 3S powersystems. But if you wanna go micro size plane, and brushless, go with 2S and AP-05. I cant recommend the C-10 since it had crappy accessories. It weights 2grams more and has probably not that much more power than the AP-05. Ill post product links to hobbyking maybe tomorrow and also Ill upload my flight video. I should already be at bed..

PS: I fly FrSky, Im not sure what system you fly, so you may need to find a suitable micro 4ch (4 or more) receiver, like AR6300 for spectrum

Helicoptero Teledirigidos - Esky Honey Bee CP3 6CH 2.4GH SKU: 8002437 is the best indoor and outdoor heli as well as.The Honey Bee CP3 rc helicopter is the latest 6 channel aerobatic helicopter with collective pitch. Not to be confused with the normal radio controlled helicopters that are on the market, this is an advanced model with wooden blades and more stable flight giving the ability to fly upside down and perform advanced stunts both indoors and outdoors.


Regards.
Andy.
