This is my new addition to my bunch of LRF's

Not a record breaker but it's my first 2 gram plane.

I could probably shave another 500>1000mg off it but i'm waiting on an order from Michael (IndoorFlyer) with C-Fibre to arrive before i can do this.

It flys nicely... Just a few minor trimming issues to iron out.

Video to follow after i get the trimming right and a second pair of hands to film
the take off.


Components:

Motor- 4mmx8mm Pager Motor = 17ohm
Battery- 8.5mah Lipo ( Lightened to 320mg approx)
RX- Avion IR 2ch (Lightened to approx 300mg)
Actuator- 120ohm self wound. > 3.5mm-ID, 4.8mm-OD, 2.2mm wide. 46AWG wire = .045mm
Magnet- 2mm x 1.5mm
Airframe- Balsa,Foam and Food Wrap for covering.
