Thanks, it flew today, and despite some wind it handles just like the full sized one, slow and stable.
I cannot take any credit for the design. The same friend of mine that turned me on to the original Sea Monkey liked the design so much he scaled one down to 20" for micro gear and cut a couple from 3mm Depron. He used the guts from an UM Gee Bee on his I think.
I decided to use low cost new parts on mine, and went the Hobby King route. I also added 3" to the center section of the wing at his recommendation. My final airframe ready to fly is 23" span and 70 grams. With the gear I used the CG came out right at 40% which is what the original Sea Monkey plans recommend.
Total weight of the electronics and prop are 35.7 grams, and total component cost is under $40.
The motor is a X1306-2200KV 8 gram brushless.
The ESC is a Turnigy Plush 6a
Servos are HK 5320 1.7 gram
Battery is a 180mah 2S
