Hey Free thats awesome, I've thought about attempting something like that but figured my structure would be too weak. What did you cover it with?

Haha, thanks!

Strength is a challenge, but so is weight. You should try one!(It took me over 10 UMs to get a good mix of weight/strength)(Would be hard to beat that!)

After months of inactivity on the Un-Official Micro-Flyers Video Challenge thread, I think the time has come to create a new challenge thread, including revised rules, more challenge categories, and fresh new concepts. So I have created the new Micro Flyers Great and Small Video Challenge thread to cater for all of the micro flying audience by adding 5 new challenge categories.

All of the challenge categories are as follows:
  • Helis (IN BLUE)
  • Helis 3D (IN LIGHT BLUE)
  • Quads (IN GREEN)
  • Quads 3D (IN DARK GREEN)
  • Planes (IN RED)
  • Planes 3D (IN ORANGE)
  • FPV also including the use of "key chain cams" and other micro recording devices (IN PURPLE)

Additionally I have added a Hall of Fame where you can compete to get your name on the podium in your respective flying class for the ultimate bragging rights.

A friend told me he has good luck sticking the masking tape to his jeans a couple of times before applying it so it will lose some of its tack.

Cool. Thanks, arauser. Now the indoor season is about to get started again, I'll give some more thought to getting an airbrush.

Here's my beastie....













Although I am going to fit it with a AR6410T DSMX 6CH as well as other doner goodies from a micro mosquito. While not technically a AR6400 it is from the same kettle of fish, just with an extra brushed ESC.

The electronics are on their way from the states, and I hope to get a running video up in the next few weeks

Very nice, valiantGLX. I've considered making one of those. I bought the West Wings stick and tissue kit to make one, but I haven't got round to it yet.

Will yours be a pusher? EDFs look good but they're just so impractical.

I was considering a EDF or 2 to begin with, but like you said they are too impratical, and she won't be a pusher either

I plan on adding 2 extra 3x2cm pices of depron to the front of the wings and cutting a small section of the wing out, so less than half of the props will be going through wings.

Excuse the dodgy diagram (try to disregard the dots), but a bit like the below:

.............../
._______/
......O.../
......I I./
......I I
...../
.../

She should fly like a dream with the twin counter rotating props, and the prop wash going directly over the elevons Sadly I wont be using the V-tail though Instead I want to add the rudder underneath the plane (its hard to explain how Im going to do it, but you'll understand once its done )

Oh shucks Thanks guys.

Shes my own design too. Originally I made the plans for the best paper plane in the world (which flies perfectly I might add), but then I scaled it up and made her out of a combination of 3 and 6 mm depron about a year ago. I never got around to finishing it at the time cause I was deterred by the comments in this thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1511215

However after alot of time on Phoenix with the F117 I am now going to follow through with my dream. Also I'd like to make a nano rc version of it, the details are on the last page of the above mentioned thread.
