Introducing the "Spirit"
To the best of my knowledge the Spirit is the worlds first remote controlled paper airplane. It took me the better part of a year to design this plane. The 3d model was designed using Google Sketchup v7. The Texturing was done using Blacksmith 3d and the model kit was done with Pepakura.
The electronics used in the Spirit can come from a Parkzone Sukhoi Su-26xp, Mustang P-51D or Trojan T-28 Ultra Micro series planes. The reason I designed the Spirit is so I have a use for the components from my crashed and utterly destroyed airplanes. The Spirit airframe is constructed entirely with plane Jane 20lb printer paper. The Weight of the Spirit is 32grams.
