Silent Mite - Aerobatic Full Fuselage Fun Plane

I've built a lot of foamy planes and only a few have made my "I'll build this one again list". On that list is the Polaris, Infinion, FuntanaMini and the newest one, the Silent Mite.

Just can't believe this plane has not caught on big time as it does everything well.
Looks good, flies good, crash resistant, uses small motors and batteries, flies in gusty winds, though not nearly as much fun as if the winds are down but it will fly in the gusty stuff. Right now it's my favorite outdoor flyer and being made from EPP it's also crash resistant.

Take a look at it - comes with good drawings and an excellent construction manual.

Here I am hovering it under a tree.

Couldn't agree more Hoppy! Awesome plane and really quite easy to build. It'd be nice to see this plane get the recognition it deserves!
