This is the same exact gear that I'm using in my Couch Flyer. It's nice having a sub 3 gram plane with RET. The RX52M really drives the NanoActs nicely! I just ordered 2 more RX52M's .

Looking forward to your builds Rogenstein! Yeah, the little Dart lrf is a good flyer. My cat killed the purple one, but the blue one still flies .

Nice. Lots of wing area. Should fly slow. I assume the wing incidences are adjustable?

It didn't fly to well I had to move the center of gravity forward lots and in the process managed to mangle a wing so converted it to a single wing ,flys really well, will be getting another rx52m when my pocket permits and starting fresh with elevator and pretty much same design oh well rookie mistakes

You can try different wing configurations on the same fuselage. Where did you get the little plastic carbon rod joining bits for the wing posts? They look like Carbon Butterfly bits.

Keep up the good work!

Having said that, a larger area wing with longer span and chord may make that a real nice floater - that GB05 prop/gearbox won't even flinch. I never had luck either with biplane configurations on these little planes, just too draggy I think...

I am happy to see that you guys are having fun with the Micro Butterfly! I designed the model for Plantraco and haven't tried it with the great DT line of receivers yet.

Nice work.

Joe.

You have a keen eye there robster, yes thay are infact from the ikara butterfly a while ago I managed to mash a carbon butterfly wing and replaced it with an ikara butterfly wing,and of course saved the tiny bits of plastic that where on broken wing as I've never found them to purchase online, I could tell I'm not far off I don't know if it needs bigger wings, as I've looked online and seen people have had success keeping with in the measurements of the original livingroom butterfly I think my problem was cog was to far back and some how was creating to much drag, I may have to have another go with this spare Plantraco rx I have although totally in love with the fantastic rx52m there perfect but cash flow is a problem for another week or to, would much rather the rx52m
