i have stuff here to make some so i think i will try that. they just wont be *as* round as i'd like lol

thats some great ideas, but no, i dont have any itc gear and solid plastic sheels would seem heavier than some balsa ones

i think i will do 2 layers of 1/32 balsa ca'ed with a teeny bit of brass tube in it. should do ok for this little thing.
so it looks like i am going to try it with the geared 4mm as it seems to balance fine with the gear laid out on the fuselage. i put an exacto blade in the nose and did some test glides outside, and man are those wings flexible! they are flat while stationary but flex into dihedral in flight. much like the human powered planes do

off to find more bits to make landing gear!
