I second that. Plans would be great. I cannot justify buying a kit when I have Boxes of foam in the garage.

I think I was one of the requests Mike got for the EzFly Icon before he officially brought it back. I've been having a lot of fun with it.

I wanted something easy to store in a closet, so I made mine with a removable wing using magnets and some extra foam pieces.

I used 14 10mm rare-earth magnets (HobbyKing), glued in with hot-glue. Total weight without the battery is 256g. I didn't weigh it before, so I'm not sure how much it added, but I think the magnets are ~12g total, so not too bad.

It flies great! The magnets seem to hold it really well. I've had a few medium-hard crashes already and the wind stayed on, had to re-glue magnets twice. Might have been able to get by with 10 magnets.

sleb - Thanks. The camera on the plane is an 808 #16 V2 - Lens D, mounted directly to the wing with Velcro. I need to experiment with moving it around to get a better view and cut down on vibration issues.

Thanks for the info. I didn't notice much vibration. Great picture from that 808 with the D lens.
