Neat Micro Things Seen At NEAT


All,

I thought I would start a thread where people could talk about what micro things they saw at this weekends NEAT Fair. Builders and flyers could also respond with info if someone found what the were doing was of interest. If a topic draws enough interest, spin it off on it's own thread so it dosen't get lost.
I was only at the Saturday night indoor session, and only for a couple of hours, yet I saw alot of impressive things. Highlights for me were Don Srull's WWI bipe flying slow lazy circles, Mark's (Aeronutz) tiny wallfoam FF rubber Corsair near the rafters, and pretty much everything Matt did.
Please chime in with what impressed you.
Graham & Gordon please organize this as you see fit.

The Proxflyer helicopter blew me away. Completely stable and silent with no gyros or gears.

I think Nick Leichty's models were fantastic. I hadn't realized he was behind the scenes making the radios Henry Pasquet uses in the super micros. Nick's planes were awesome at the NEAT indoor. My stuff is big and heavy compared to Nick's planes, but what I liked is they have a full fuselage and landing gear so they look extra cool but only weigh 5 grams total with 5 inch span. But everybody's micro stuff was real impressive, everybody deserves credit. Proxyflyer was great. -Matt Keennon

Yes, Matt, your stuff was great (and unique) and Nick's stuff just blew me away too. 5" span Ugly Stick was anything but ugly!
I'm still buzzing from everything I saw and from how friendly everyone I met was. What a great group!

I went out a day early to give a lecture to the Walton High School Aeronautics class. This was where we had the indoor night on Saturday. After talking about the planes we went to the gym and flew the Quick Junior and Punkin bipe. One of the girls seems to be making eyes at one of the guys.

This plane is called Big Slow and uses conventional GWS equipment. It was slow.

The famous Don Srull holding a plane his 8-year old grandson designed on CAD and built while on a visit from California. Don put a motor and RC in it and says it is one of his best flyers.

Just one of Henry Pasquet's very tiny planes, this one with Co2 power.

Henry has been advising a college somewhere on MAV's and had these two small ones to show, and a third not shown here. They fly too fast to fly indoors, but were neat.

This is a new laser cut J3-Cub kit that EFlight Designs is carrying. They donated one with actuators for our raffle.

This is a "Walker" that Dave Robelen had built for Dan Hurd. It was also quite slow.
