Yeah, saw those but it doesn't show the elevons in detail.

Pretty sure this isn't a MiniFly at all. Thinking it is a Hyper-Flea and I wrote the wrong name on the box. Ordered it way back on 12/20/17 so anything is possible with my horrible memory. Maybe that is what I ordered and I forgot.

Nope,not a Hyper flea. I have one and the wing span is 22 inches. Not sure just when the hyper flea was discontinued. But I'm sure it was long before 2017

Tram is still around. He posted here just last month. I looked at the instructions for the mini-fly on the website. it says the elevons have the 45 degree bevel pre-cut on them, and they're slightly longer than the wings when the correct gap is set in the middle (1/4 to 1/2"). There should also be some extra foam to be able to cut the vertical stabilizers.

what is strange is the wingspan.... teensiefly should be 12" wingspan and minifly should be 20" wingspan, hyperflea was 22" wingspan, and the even older superflea was 23" wingspan

Found it. (maybe) Along time ago superfly used to have a ducted fan beastie they called the supermite. It had a 16" wingspan. review is here:

Certainly looks like what I have, same shape. Seems there are two and extras in the box as well. Two sets of cores, one blem, three canopies all in a row that fell apart from pre-cut.

Either way, never knew of it so not something I would have ordered. No worries, been two years according to PayPal so all on me.

Over the years i've ended up with two or three superflea's and two superfly's. always wanted to try one of the mini's or teensie's just haven't yet...
I think replacement canopies are still available, if you need some....

The canopies are fine. Just meant that there are three of them that were cut out and the cut to separate them wasn't complete so they pulled apart from one another easily.

Still here.

Initial thoughts - sometimes Iíll throw flyable blem kits into the box instead of throwing them away, so that may explain that portion. Iíve had people ask for them in the past, so I just started including them.

Next thought is that Iíll fix whatever the issue, so donít fret there.

I just got your email.

Give me a few and youíll have a reply.

It's been two years, nothing for you to fix. Please let me know when I can purchase a MiniFly kit.

Also, any idea what this one is? Curiosity is high. 😁
