Show off your 3D foamie

I thought I would start a thread for people to showcase their homebuilt micro 3D foamie aircraft.

To start it off here are some of mine.

Yes only 3D aircraft.

Does not only include ultra micro aircraft.

This it the 30 in. Catsass and the 15 in. indoor KittyassThe Kittysass has the Spektrum microgear. You can see the two ail servos under the wing. It also runs on a 360 2 cell batt with a diode to drop the voltage to the rcvr and servos. Brushless motor also. A little powerhouse. Hovers with the best of them.

3d with only aileron or rudder is going to be tough.

I am glad you want to start building these planes!!

The only problem I've found is that in the UM size the necessary power to fly full out 3D is not quite there.
But if you want to fly slow, you can do that just fine.

Definitely check out the Yak, it looks like a really nice plane!

This is my 10 inch wingspan version of my Micro Laser 3D design, and a video of Devin McGrath flying the model at the 2014 Horizon event! Please see my thread I started on my 8.5 inch wingspan Micro Laser 3D, and this 10 inch version for more information on the model.

Here is a link to Joe's original thread with all the details.
Short answer; this uses lighter components.

And here is my current 3d foamy. Full disclosure, I purchased it, but it was home made so I think it fits the OP's citeria.
Like Joe's, this does use a deltang receiver. This one uses 3 linear servos, rather than the mix of a servo and actuators.
13.9g originally, but a little chunkier now with glue from repairs.
