Thats a pretty cool subject! Right now I'm trying to make a tiny pistachio scale M.20 for capacitor and pager motor power.

I've been pretty happy with it. I thought the geometry was good for a model when I saw the three views. I've been surprised how well this plane deals with wind. I don't think I mentioned that the landing gear are held on with magnets. Yes they pop off on each landing which absorbs energy in a non-destructive way.

I'll have to get some video of a flight where I stay slow and close so you can see the plane in the video.

Yeah the wings don't taper to sharply, so should be good for tiny models too

I would love to see some video!
