AUW will be nearly 6oz. Theres almost as much weight in the side panels as the rest of the foam, so it's pretty heavy. That'll probable make it pretty sluggish on the ailerons. No idea on wing loading, but it's probably pretty high. My original idea was to use a ducted fan, but I couldn't find a fan and power system strong enough for my needs within weight limitations.

My bigger outdoor version will probably have rudders built into the side panels, so I'll be able to make use of the escessive amount of area in those panels. It'll probably knife edge better than it flys level I didn't want to spare the weight for the extra servo on this one, atleast not until I know it actually flys...
