Micro SSX Biplane (Now Available)

The Micro SSX Biplane is now shipping. I have also been updating the build thread with the latest info. Several past posts have been edited.

Would this be a good trainer type easy to fly plane? I've got 2 planes that I've put together, but seem to crash each time out. Both are in need of work at the moment, but I would like something that could be an easy to fly, slow if need be type plane. This looks like it would be a fun build.
Would a GBX single, 17T type motor work, or is that to much power? Thanks for any input.

The motor needs to weigh 20 grams or less. The Micro SSX Biplane is not designed to be a trainer. I would recommend my X-Trainer.

I just ordered the Biplane from James a few days ago, I am excited to get working on this new project. I will also update with picture and my building experience and as soon as I get it in the air I will update my flight experience.

Thanks again James, you were great to work with!

What are your prop and battery reccomendations for the cd-rom style motor with the kit?

Hey, looks great! I use a 7-3.5 GWS prop with a 3 cell battery. Use a 7-5 with 2 cells.

James, someone asked me if you had a full size SSX biplane (not the micro). I told him I did not think so. Are you planning on doing one?
