Hi Lanternfly,
interesting question - it depends to the wind, I would say.
On calm and sunny days with not more than 1-2 bft. I prefer my 320cm MANTA and the big PATRIOT ROTATOR.
From winds of 2 - 5 bft. I prefer 55" or 75" Deltaboxes.
Nevertheless, I like'em all

Hi Flattermann ,

on your submicro canard powered by a small heli , did you have to disable the gyro on the heli ?

Thanks ,

Al

Hi Al,

not necessary to disable anything. It flies comfortable, when the heli drive unit was turned 90degrees and worked as the kite's vector unit.
I think, larger heli drive units should work in larger kites, too - has to be tested once.

Thanks Flattermann .

I'm going to try building an airframe out of inexpensive foam ( $1 for a 20" x 30" sheet ) and powering it with a small inexpensive quadcopter ( $19 ) mounted to the nose . If it works , I'll have an RC airplane for a total cost of about $20 .

I was asked by a boy scout leader if I would be willing to teach the scouts how to build an RC plane , and $20 would be affordable for them .
