Indoor slow/stunt/small area/3d airplane

Looking for a new plane for my winter small indoor area enjoyment...

-slow flier
-flies stunts in small area
-wheels for touch & goes
-good looks

Best I've found is 22" EPP homebuilt stuff but I'm looking for more of a production plane.

Any ideas or places to shop ??

"Watch out for...CRUNCH!!
Thats a pretty specific list there. Sounds kinda like you are looking for an ultra micro Yak type plane. I am not sure if there are any good consumer yak style planes out there, just my two cents.

I'm surprised HH hasn't made a 2S AS3X replacement for the Extra 300 3D.

The Extra 300 was great, but it takes all out of 1S to hover and you sacrifice durability.

You are correct that what you want isn't available RTF, yet, but HH has all of the stuff to give you exactly what you want.

22" EPP with an AS3X brick would be killer for driveway 3D.

Leadfeather's Yak? I saw some on sale for 150 BNF at Weak Signals 2012......maybe he'll sell them again next year. Too bad I didnt pick one up.....

Yes - I currently fly a home-brew basically Leadfeathers Yak...

Missing - landing gear for indoor touch-go's
Also the EPP bending ?? makes it kinda swoop as the surfaces flex in flight

It's about the best I've seen so far for indoor but hoping HH would have something in that range.

Ever heard of hybrid/multi material builds?

Use EPP for the main airframe and Depron for the control surfaces.
