Looks awesome Mike. A few questions.
IPS power?
Rudder/ elevator?
Whats it made of?
Does it fly?

Good job on the design.

It flys fantastic,it's made of 3mm zepron foam and uses elevons no rudder it dosn't need it.It is fully controlable in a hover without it and is a blast to fly. For power it uses the A drive and GWS gear and a pair of lithium polys.AUW is140 grams and the carbon fiber rod makes it super strong. At 29.95 I think it's a good value. Mike

Hi matthew,
I can't tell you exactly but I have flown it in very small spaces.
I flew it at a club meeting in a space about 15' to 20' sq.w/ a
7' ceiling so it fly pretty slow.
