I saw the plans for the Silent Mite a few months ago, when the indoor season started. But my first experience indoor was with the Nexus. After a few hours of orientating in the hall things went very well. So I built an Index 2.2 designed by Aio (great F3P plane!). Now I want something faster but not as fast as my Graupner Nemesis which is also on the bench.

Here are my first building pics. Hope to fly it this weekend. The toughest part is finished (took some time to figure out the best way to bend the 3mm Depron, I used a spoon).

The fuselage


And the fuselage sides glued together (POR was already my favorit foam glue on my othe Depron flyers)




-edit-
One day later. Placed the servos, rods, hinges, motor and ESC. Only need to place the receiver and find the right plavce for the LiPo (probably a 850mAh 2S1P or 350mAh 3S1P since I have a lot of these ).
