Looking for a thread of very small triplane videos

Hi,
I am looking for a thread that I should have bookmarked. This thread had videos of a very very small tri-plane (I think it was silver in color). The videos of it had it flying around a bedroom and taking off from the bed etc. Anyone know which thread that was? Thanks.

David Liu was the individual who designed and built the plan and is quite active in this forum.

The thread #60174 (middle link above) describes the final version of this plane. It's down to about 9.9 g AUW currently and is unlikely to go any lighter (especially since I'm working on an aileron biplane now).

David. I must say, this is the most impressive plane I have ever seen. Incredible. Excellent job!

Thanks-- the Wisp takes one design parameter very far but I don't think it can be compared to some of the other tremendous efforts reported on this board. One of my longterm goals is to develop a way of making scale-like fuselages out of CF rod and mylar, especially after trading one of my Wisps for Chris3D's Pitts (the latter is every bit as beautiful in real life as it is in the pictures).

Also, like many newer planes the Wisp is a product of a lot of good advice and innovation by others in this hobby, especially Gordon, Nick Leichty, and Jean-Daniel Nicoud (of Didel).
