This is a little 6mm depron Katana indoor jobby. It uses the same running gear as my Nutta and didn't cost much to get into the air. It will fly good on 2 cells but hover easily on 3 cells.

This one has been through a few iterations with me. I bought it already built and it weighed around 480 grams and was a real floater. I promptly taped it up and got it up to around 700 grams. It flew well in medium conditions I even got it in a light DS circuit a couple of times. But after I ditched my Alula I wanted another floater. So off came all of the tape and it's back to around 480 grams. I now use it mainly as a thermaller or when I just want to laze around on the sky, flying nice and scale like. As an inland thermal glider it is really good and will go up on a sniff of lift. I hooked a boomer one day and had to pull it out when it got so high I was having trouble telling it's orientation. Very cool.

Looked ok, got it for $30 (airfame). But flew like crap. Actually it didn't fly and that is what everyone on RC Groups said about it too. Lesson here is read about planes before you buy them because even at $30 it's a ripoff if it's crap.

My 2nd Chevron wing and the best news is this one is made in Australia (www.offtheedge.com.au). Heavily into combat now and this one is fast and hits hard. You need to be patient after a hit and let it go nose down and get some speed for the recovery, but when you get the knack it's easy. It will fly all around Bees and my old Fatboy. Also good for DS'ing if you have a spot for it. Build it smooth and you will be surprised at it's speed.

Update: Rebuilt it with the New Stuff and Monokote and damn it's even faster now!!!
