Many of the successful full scale designs started out as models. Burt Rutan did much of his early design checks with RC models. The problem is knowing how the scale effects will be accounted for due to Reynolds effect.

I am not an expert about the Guinness Book but I thought that a few years back they stopped adding new categories.
Is this already something that is in the record book ? If not you might want to check to see if they will accept it as a category.
If it is already a category what are you competing against ?
I don't know if this is the same thing or not but the motorized parachutes and ultralights are pretty simple.

last time I checked the bumble bee was the world smallest aircraft.

be warned tho, it has one of those horrible midi tracks on the site.

Damn near anything will fly given adequate power and a reasonable wing loading.The important thing is, will it be stable, controllable,SAFE, and offer an advantage for purpose over any other designs for same purpose? If not, don't bother. How to make a small fortune from aviation? Start with a large fortune!

The Bumblebee is apparently a very hard plane to fly. Your flying pizza plate would likely also be tough to fly and require a highly skilled pilot to avoid crashing.

There's also those little fiddly issues that you'd need to get your pilot's license and have it built as an experimental plane complete with FAA inspections.
