Filippo Materazzi Design - Metis

Hello guys,
yesterday I presented to you my last F3P design, the I would like to do the same with the Metis, for freestyle and aeromusical flight. From the official site :

"The Metis is the last version of my famous indoor freestyle airplane which I flew in World Air Games 2009. It has been totally updated but maintaining its particular style. Now it has bigger mobile surfaces, a higher top and bottom fuselage and a completely new milling, paying attention to maintain the strength of the airframe. Thanks to all these tricks it flies slowly and smoothly but it can become very agile, reactive and fast if you need it. This characteristic is fundamental for an aeromusical flight where you need to change the flight style according to the music, but also in a good freestyle, to differentiate the maneuvers and employ the own imagination. In addition, a beginner can improve his skills gradually, increasing step by step the movement of mobile surfaces.
The color scheme is simply innovative and unique, very "aggressive" and dynamic, but elegant too, with very intense colors. The fuselage and some other parts are painted on both sides, even if milled. The kit is composed by 3 mm and 2 mm depron, carbon rods, super lightweight carbon control horns and all the necessary to complete the plane, except the electronic parts."

And here the main details:

WINGSPAN 90 cm / 35,4
FUSELAGE 95 cm / 37,4
MATERIALS 3 mm milled depron, 2 mm depron, carbon
FLYING WEIGHT (without battery) about 120-130 g / 4,23-4,58 Oz
FLYING WEIGHT (with battery) About 140-150 g / 4,93-5,29 Oz
BOX CONTENT depron model parts, pre-cutted carbon rods (2 mm rods, 1,5 mm rods, 1,3 mm rods, 1 mm rods), pre-cutted carbon strips (0,5mm strip), 0,5 mm carbon control horns, micro clips, male/female velcro, wire

I hope you like it!
