That's excellent, is there a spring loading (or other) to fold the motor back when it's not running? I'd like to see a vid if you can make one, it does look slow.

Hi Shag,

Thank's for your compliment!

Way to many airplanes!
Very, very nice design (and small). Technically, you would not need a spring I think...

An elegant design and nicely executed Reto!
The transmitter should cover most requirements for this model?

I saw the video of it in the gym. It looks very nice. Do you think you will be able to get a video when the weather decides to cooperate?
