Indoor Slow Fly that can do loops & rolls?

Looking for an indoor slow fly model airplane that has 16" or less span,
weighs less than 35 grams, runs on 1 lipo cell, and can do loops and
rolls in small gym type space. If you know of such an airplane let me know.

Dan, I started to answer with 'UM 4-site' before I realized it was you.
What are you looking for? Something slower?

The PZ UMX Extra 300 is/was the best of the RTF indoor offerings for a plane that was reasonably slow AND aerobatic. Unfortunately (and cruelly) it is no longer available. Horizon is also OOS on the "replacement airframes" one of which I am currently flying, after many, many, many flights on the original.

Iffin' you're up to it, and using pics of the plane, you can replicate the dimensions and then "skeletonize" the snot out of it. Using 4 or your own "1.2 gm" servos, a DT Rx, a PZ replacement motor/GB for the 4Site/extra 300/etc and a 160mAH UM cell., you'd have a plane at about 29/30 grams, lighter than the OTC plane.

Sweet!!

P.S., I made a 140% version (22.5" WS), fitted with a HK 10 gm motor and ar6400 with 2x250 mAH cells and using the "scaling" factor, it flew at about 80% of the stock version. Really nice and really slow!! Kinda like F3P slow!!

You might want to check out the planes from Dynamic Foamy.

I have all three of the 'Sub-Micro 3D' planes. I like them all, but my favorite is probably the Yak 55. It's a little bigger than what you asked about, but can fly even slower than the UMX Extra 300.

Of course they are kits and you need to provide the electronics. But they are easy to assemble, and excellent performers even in relatively small spaces.

The Slick Micro looks like something that would work for you.
