foamie for very small spaces

I'm wishing for a foamie to fly in a pretty confined space, a cul-de-sac lined with trees. I've flown a pico stick there, but it was very exciting. I really had to crank it around to stay out of the woods (literally).

I don't have many requirements other than the ability to cope with the small space, but some aerobatic capability would be a plus. Another plus would be something that looks like a real airplane. (ie, not a ufo)

I have a small P-38 that is flys well in confined spaces, it turns really quick with ailerons.

I would recommend a superflea (very agile, not too fast) but it depends on your definition of 'a real airplane' - it looks a bit like an F14 from the front, if you half close your eyes and the light isn't good, on a foggy day ;-)

Have you looked at the 3d forum? That's got to be the ultimate in small spaces.

Tim,
Youv'e got to come down to the "lowlands" and see what we are flying. Better yet, go to the TeamTeke funfly this weekend and see what most of Colorado is flying.

They are saying it will fly well in a very small area.

Check this thread out in the 3D forum. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...9&page=1&pp=15

Heres a movie of me flying it in my garage. www.jz123.rchomepage.com/maiko1.MOV

Although it flies great, I need some more money, and I put it up forsale in the for sale forum..
