Flite Test presents a very nice small plane: FT Mini Speedster. Available as a kit or as a plan. The kit seems me extroardinary and very inventive.
I used the free download plan in order to build mine lighter mainly from 3mm depron and cardboard.

This small RET plane is currently one of my favourites. I am sure the original kit is stronger than my version but I am always searching for very light planes even if weaker.

I fly this plane indoor: a real pleasure. She is very neutral and distinctive from other RET planes I tested. Speed range is wide and she remains very precise from low to high speed.
Design is brilliant and other pilots found this plane very nice.
