First under 100 grams!

Just want to share with you my first under 100 grams plane, and it flies well too! The goal was max 50 cm wingspan, easy to build, cheap, use of standard micro gear and cdrom unmodified motor. After two hours work here it is: the Slowfish! Why? It is slow and I usually fly this kind of model at the beach 50 metres from my house, so ...fish , hoping not to meet the sea with the model!
The powerhouse is a 16x CDRom motor with standard windings and the specs are: 1 amp consumption with two lipoly 145 Kokam, Gunther prop spinning 5900 rpm, all up weight 91 grams .

no, it's for all the bikers
here is a nose detail...
prop simply pressed on the shaft with the aid of some heat shrinking tubing, at this power level it is enough: 8watt
