Backyard/Cul de Sac Flyer?


I need recommendations for a stable, slow flying yet manuverable EPP foam electric plane that is 3 channel (aileron, elevator, throttle) with landing gear that I can fly in front of my house in a cul se sac. It needs to be stable at slow speeds so I can avoid a several light posts and trees.

Not sure if something like I'm describing even exists but I thought I'd ask.

If you can get past the foam part, the Stevens Aeromodel Diddlebug is an excellent cul-de-sac flyer.

not foam, but the StevensAero Diddlebug fits all of your other criteria nicely.

I have one and I love it, and I much prefer foamies in general.

Take a look at www.SuperFlyRC.com

Be sure to check out the movies...

The SuperFlea Twin LITE is what we fly in the back yard. Oak trees and fences win sometimes.....

Here is another thread with a SuperFlea Twin EDF LITE:

You can bend the wingtips up and touch them to each other. Pretty tough stuff!!!
