Nice! That looks fantastic! Derived from a card model perhaps?

Had some flyings with her yesterday. I have ordered two Hacker A05, but haven´t got them yet, so I have temporarily used some small HK motors. They are too small for the job, specialy when I try to increase AoA

That looks and flies nice. But it sure does seem loud.

Polledk, great video, fantastic flying in such a small area. Your airliner sure does fly very well indeed. . I'd like to see it fly when you get your Hacker motors installed.

Very nice airliner there, Polledk! I am looking to build an airliner for indoor flight here soon as well. Can you tell me a bit about your design? Did you make this using three-views? How much did you have to modify the wing to account for the lack of surface area on the scale version?

Keep up the good work! I also am looking forward to seeing the difference with the Hacker motors!

I have used the attacked plans.
I have added about 20mm (3/4") to the cord, and added 15mm (5/8") to the flaps cord at the root, and 10mm (3/8") to the middle flaps/ail cord.

Maybe its easier to see the flaps/ail configuration here. The middle flaps are glued to the ailerons so they work as ails too

Wow, that is almost as slow as Martin Müller's Airbus!
Are you sure you didn't use a helium filled fuselage as well?

How about some more specs? Wingspan, length, servos, LiPo?

For reference Martin Müller's Airbus:
