2 New Micros (Work in Progress)
While I'm saving up for a Plantraco setup, I thought I would start building something to put it into.
#1 - Mini Bump Parasol:
w/s = 10"
length = 7.5"
airframe weight = 1.7 gram
2mm hot wire cut styrofoam w/minimum balsa reinforcing
Based on Epilot's drawing - just used the fuselage planform but turned it
#2 - Mini LiddleDiddle
w/s = 11"
length = 8"
airframe weight = 2.1 grams
2mm hot wire cut styrofoam w/balsa reinforcing
Base on pictures posted in the Diddle and LiddleDiddle threads
Any comments welcome.

Those are great looking airframes that will inspire others to try Micro R/C!
Love to see this - thanks for showing us what your are building!
Those are lightweight airframes!

I could have saved you the work on the fuselage

well, i saw the parasol, and i couldnt resist... and, i got a new camera on friday, and want to post pics...
heres the peices of foam, at the lowest quality, at the lowest size, in bad lighting conditions, without flash. lol.
and a few moments for the six foam plates who were grotesquelly(i love that word, cant spell it) mudered for materials......

ok, finished. i like the looks of mine, with the "huge" larry park wheels. it weighs a slightly heavy 1.6 grams, mines only a 8.5 inch span. not sure what equiptment will be in it- hopefully standard plantraco stuff, with a 6mm dd. that would be 8 grams at most. with about 6 grams of ballast, it flys slow enough but not slow enough for living room flight. or at least not for my livingroom . in a gym or a big ol' room, it should fly great.
erm, sorry for kinda highjacking the thread..

foam ones might add little weight... larry park ones add NO weight . well, .3 grams for both, and they actually spin amazin', unlike my homemade ones.
i think the parasol needs to be the intermediate newbie plane(yes, theres a reason i made one ). first, the guppy with the build thread. then, the parosal. a little bit more complex because of the wing struts. then, the normal bump, with the full fuse.
