Best indoor flyer

Hi Guys

I am posting this because I have been flying this particular airplane indoors every week for more than a year .It is the airplane I take every single week regardless of what else I am in the mood for flying .

Here are some of the characteristics necesary to make it the great indoor flyer that it is .

It must be fun to fly .
It must be abe to fly at a high alpha very slow.
It must be highly manueverable for me .
It must have ample power.
It must be non threatening to the guys who are flying the smaller planes.
It can fly with the big guys as well as the small guys.
It must be very durable.
It must be small and compact for travel.

This is a very simple airplane to build and fly.Give one a try you'll love it .

Here is the build thread. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1386303


ZIPPY in the gym while it is freezing outside (3 min 51 sec)


Thanks
Charlie

If you prefer elevon-rudder planes you should try a Pie-Yak. They say the round ones fly better than the square ones, the videos alone make ya want to make 10 of them.

Hi I R Irv.

I had nothing to do so I did build a pie yak.frankly i was very impressed with the video but i was less of a pilot and found mine a little too wiggley.

The Little zippy is a really good indoor plane .If you have a piece of 6 mm Epp around give one a try.

Thanks
Charlie
