Looking for plans for an aerobatic indoor depron plane (Minsai or similar maybe?)

Iīm looking to build something new in depron as the indoor season begun today with the first meeting. As usual everyone thought my old And Now had real stunning performance as they are used to Picosticks and similar planes. I however want to build someting new.

I have seen Martin Müllerīs Minsai planes and would love to build something like that in moulded depron. I basicallt want something that looks somewhat like a real airplane and has good performance (it definately has to be able to prophang), preferable with a fully symmetrical airfoil.

Iīve seen plenty of nice depron planes with "real" (not the stick-type) fuselages but havenīt found any plans at all.

Erik we in Holland have modified the And_Now. We enlarged it by 1.1 and added a longer fuselage. The fuselage is made of 5 mm carbon tube. The wing is still from Depron and the ailerons are flexed up a little bit. We are also using a mechanical mixer to let the ailerons work to gether with the stabilizer. As engine/gearbox we use a speed 300 with a 5.5:1 gearboxand a 9x4,7 or a 10x4,7 orange GWS prop. With this combo we can do almost unlimmited aerobatics. (no knife edge possible)

My And Now is just slightly modified. I made the fuselage 50mm longer because I thought it was way too short

Itīs working well but I want to prophang

Also Iīd like something that looks a little more like an airplane.
