I have been bitten by the mini bug. Actually I have had some small parts laying around and thought I'd put them to use. AUW is 4.9 ounces. 40mm edf, 500mah 2s.

It'll be so cool to see that fly, Chip. It'll be like a gnat!

I will video it, whether it flies or fails or somewhere in between

By the way, what's a "gnat"? You're referring to the mosquito-ish bug or what? It will sure be a handful to fly, if that's what you mean!

Inside nacelle came loose...but it flies...some small repairs and I will try again.....I had 50-55% expo...I think that is a little high...I move the sticks...nothing happens and then bam...too much. I will tweak it and fly again.....

Wow, that little beast is awesome, Chip! You could almost put that in your suitcase when you come north! I was out thrashing one of my Migs around today too and my 85% F18, lots of fun, but not as nimble as your "mini Mig". Very cool! Your daughter's paint scheme would be very easy to track in the sky!

Cheers,

Scott

Wow, that will keep you working on your reflexes for sure!

Why didn't you dial down your expo in between flights, or did you come to this conclusion after watching the footage at home?

At the time I was more concerned with the spinning to the left tendancies, and then the parts that came loose. If I could have gotten more flights I would have corrected that...

Got it dialed in I think as much as I can. It doesn't have the power to loop and it can not roll right because of the torque of the edf. I got the balance figured out. It is a novelty flyer. I will eventually look at building a version with a prop. It will have to be a small one because of the narrow wing span. Proof that the RC Powers models are great though. I just shrunk it down and it flies similar to the larger version...finding the correct power plant is the issue....
