Which do you like better, Micro 3D Foamies or Ultra-Micro 3D Foamies

Micro 3D foamies (28-36 inch wing-span)

Ultra-Micro 3D foamies (16-28 inch wing span)


I prefer Ultra Micro 3D Foamies because they can fly almost anywhere

i like the 20-22" 3d fomies because they have a bigger wing area and are profile but i also do like the ultra micros more then the mini 3D planes

28-36 because i fly outside and have no indoor place to fly. 3d ultra micros are very difficult to make durable compared to something a little bigger.

I like them both, but I prefer ultra micro better.

I also like 26" ones because they are very light if yuo build them right so you can fly and land them on a dime!

I bought an Axon Raptor kit but have held back on building it, as the small electronics don't seem to be ready yet. I keep reading about stripped servos, broken motor wires that have to be resoldered, gearboxes that don't work, soft steel prop shafts that bend while looking at them . . .

Maybe things are better in the 22" world.

I've been wondering what could be done with Plantraco gear, could a sub 10" ws 3D plane be built? It'd be great to have a small room flyer for windy days.

Sub 10inch is prety small. You'd need some seriously small elecs to make one

Plantraco's classroom fighters are 9.5 inch WS but they are only 2 channels.

Plantraco has a couple 4 channel rx's. One with mini-jst connectors and one with their bahoma connector.

The Plantraco 4 channel bahoma rx is .95 grams, and they have actuators as small as .07 grams. They say it is fully proportional.

Their smallest plane is the 3.5 inch ws Micro Butterfly. It's two channels with one of the .07 gr actuators.

Might be possible to build something like a 3D plane in the 5-6" WS range? Depends on how good the actuators are.

I'd like to try it. One of these days when I'm rich . . .

Actuators are "probably" strong enough. I had a little Air Hogs Havoc plane with an actuator-driven rudder a couple inches behind a mid mounted propellor. The actuator worked fine, for being non-proportional and all. It's a shame that was only a 2 channel IR plane, but that's another topic.
