Micro Sailplanes for indoor use

A year or two ago there was somebody building really small sailplanes to fly indoors. They may even have been scale looking and I think guys were even aerotowing them.

Does anybody remember these, or am I delusional some more or again?

I have tried several searches for micro sailplanes and gliders and only get about a bazillion threads to search through.

Thanks
Mark

I had one of these http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1822068 for a while. My problem was trying to fly it with a Vapor tx and AR6400, rudder on left stick, elevator on right and no way to mix it. Passed it on to a friend,

Mark,

You're not delusional at least on this topic.

Drop Red a PM, I'm sure he'd be willing to cut some kits for you.

Hi
We use a 120 cm span scratchbuild flying wing for indoor towing.
Towplane is a RC factory Sbach, running on 3 cell battery.
