Micro Wings?

A couple weeks ago I bought a HyperFlea from SuperFlyRC.com. It's probably my favorite plane with its wide speed envelope, durability, and excellent handling. I've also had a SuperFlea for two years- and it still flies like it did the day I finished building it. You simply can't kill these planes, their design is almost flawless.

What I want now is a plane that will have similar characteristics, only with a sub 12 inch wingspan so I can fly in much smaller spaces. I'd like for it to be EPP so it can stand up the abuse I will definitely put it through, and I want it to be relatively cheap and easy to build.

If there is such a plane that I can buy, please let me know. It will make my day (after burning up a LiPo and screwing up my radio).

And if there is no such plane, and I'll have to make one, please give me a few tips as to how to go about doing so. I'm confused enough as it is with regular planes. Magnetic actuators, tiny prop, pager motors, forget it. I'm lost.

Thanks!!

IN one of the posts in here, there seems to be a Plantraco controlled micro wing in a little bit of video. It sparked a few interested people.
