New Micro SlowBipe (In the house flight with spectrum gear)

I have developed a new plane. I have successfully flown this in my house by making a circuit from my family room, around my kitchen and back into my family room. I don't even think this could be done with an Ember.

We hope to have kits available to ship out in 2 to 3 weeks. Sold by SlowBipe Air.

Name: Micro SlowBipe
Type: Biplane
Wingspan: 10"
Length: 13"
Weight rtf: 22g

The design is simple to build and very durable. I crashed a few dozen time leaning to fly the circuit in my kitchen, and the hardwood floors and the refrigerator are very hard. After all the the plane is still undamaged.

It easily takes the gear out of almost any parkzone airplane. On the plane in this video I used a 3g brushless motor from HobbyKing, but I believe it would fly with even more power using the standard motor out of the Sukhoi. Only requires rudder and elevator, yet is very controllable and aerobatic.

Here are some pictures of it sitting on the elevon from the GiantBipe I am working on. There is also a video I shot today in my kitchen having lots of fun.

Remember to pick higher resolution to view the YouTube video.

Enjoy!
