If you're willing to build your own from scratch, go to the Indoor and Micro forum and search for my "140 Percent UMX Extra 300 ** NOW WITH VIDEO ** " thread.

This plane retains all of the great flying characteristics of the stock UMX Extra 300, but I enlarged the dimensions to 22 inch WS, which lowered the flying speed to about 80% of the original. Knife edge, inside and outside loops, etc. are easy. However, snap rolls are a bit too trying for a depron/mylar structure - so stick to the slower Pattern-type maneuvers and you'll be happy.

My original plane was converted to use an AS3X version of the ar6400, but a strong gust of wind blasted it into a tree. All that could be salvaged was the equipment, so after the holidays I am going to build a new airframe for it. I will post a build thread over there and a link to it here.

Another suggestion is the Vision3D by [URL="featherlightrc.com/kits/vision-3d.html"]featherlightrc.com/kits/vision-3d.html[/URL it flies as slow as Alexi Lantsov's or Donatas' planes.
