Show off those smallest living room flyers flying in the smallest living room

Check this out, my own design of cartoon sopwith camel, infrared 2Chanel receiver, 4mm Gear box (1:6), 4mm 75Ω actuator coils, 65mm propeller, 18mah bettery, wingspan 160mm, weight 4.7g.

I fly it in a 3 X 4 m^2 living room, it flies really well.

Neat build. Looks like it'd be a fun rainy day indoor flyer.

Fenger,

Excellent! It looks like it might be slightly nose-heavy, though that may be because you have to apply up-elevator to keep the nose up while turning.

Well, Swilson50, tks for the words! This is my own design, I offer 2 ways to make this plane.
For the easy way, you can make no dihedral for the lower wing, make it flat, but you maybe need to do little more adjustment before the flying.
Hehe, for the other way, I think I don't need to say anything here.
The down trust and the right trust you may make it by testing fly, for me, there was never a specific down trust and right trust for any of my little plane.
The CG point will be at 1/3 to 2/5 from the leading edge of the top wing roughly.
The plan is make on A4 size, just straight print it out, no any zooming.
OK, good luck! And don't forget to post your little camel here after you done it!

Thanks for the plans.I'll probably use a plantraco 2ch setup (the small one). I may have to enlarge it just a tad. Hopefully other guys will experiement too.
Thanks again,

I don't know the weight of the Plantraco 2ch, but my receiver is only about 0.22g.

The living room flyer needs to be very light, gets small wing load, especially you want it fly in a tiny room.

Wish you will be successful.
