These little versions are surprisingly stiff.. and could be the best way to go... I know big is impressive but it does give problems..
The little version-2 MyFoBug is done ... as usuall its over the weight I was aiming at.. but I did add extra bracing rods and wheels.. also I used plugable connectors blocks for the rx/esc/motor where direct soldering would save weight.. the area on this is 152sq" the AUW with a 5gm motor and 160 lipo is 35gms
I was thinking of lights, just a few, but I will see how it goes first of all

messing with the setup its now all working fine.. I have just found that better batteries make a vast difference to the power out of the 5gm motor.. I have a selection and the genuine parkzones are poor compared to the turnegy nano tech , one gets nearly to the hover, so 35gms thrust.. the turnrgy will go vertical quickly... yeh!!!
so now some lights are on the cards....

edit ...Now flown with a COG of 70mm back from its leading edge....very slow and easy, a step up from a vapor type it will loop , but when flown slowly is too slow in the roll..more power should get it rolling, but with our cold weather the bateries were not up to the job
