Full-scale Planes So Small They Look Like RC Planes

Here is a video featuring some of the smallest full-scale planes in the world!


Smallest Mini Aircraft In The World

To start flying can be very expensive. As the size of an airplane does affect the prices, we have a look at the smallest mini aircraft in the world today. All of the mini aircraft come with an engine and can be operated by a pilot. Some of the mini aircraft engine are in the ultralight aircraft category and some are even compliant with the Part 103 regulation which means you can fly those mini planes without a license in the US. We even found an insane small helicopter for the ones that are more interested in helicopters than in jet.

I got to see the Cri Cri acrobatic stunts @ OSH 81 !! I fell in love with the original designer's perfect mirror laminar airfoil and flow plus the mirror sheen on thin aluminum

I would love a low and slow ultralight but at the present there doesn’t seem to be a reliable power plant on the market. I hope the electric movement will change that.
