Hey everyone!!! I'm new to the forum and in a somewhat unique situation. I'm a trucker with limited space, a huge passion for flying, and a strong urge to build my own planes. With all that in mind, I am just wondering if there are any easy micro/mini plans already out there or in the works that I could try. And if not.. well what y'all waiting on?? Lol!!

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

See u in the air!! Or road.. or a ditch somewhere coz I panicked and flipped when I shoulda just let go of the control stick and I'm picking up the pieces of my shattered plane... ;)

Actually, I really want to build a small indoor flying. I don't know what I'm waiting on. I think it's laziness.

Does it have to look good? Or can it be a wood dowel with wings?

Most of the really small micros were just that, sticks with wings. I think some of the companies, like Parkzone, have gone to a more finished look on bought micros but I still see sticks with wings on indoor videos all the time. Like Bixler says, "if it flies, there's something to love about it".

I have a few of the parkzone ultra micro series planes. They are great. I'll tell you not to start with the stryker...lol I own 2, and basically have destroyed 2 of them. The mustang is awesome. I know you wanted to build your own planes but I highly recommend the parkzone ultra micro series. I use the Spektrum DX6i and buy only the bind in fly models. You will save money over the long run and its a great radio.

You could always buy one and then when you break it. I mean IF you break it. Use the electronics and whatever else you can reuse to scratch build one. I'm considering doing that because I don't know what electronics I need to make the plane small/light enough.

I've got 3 umx on the truck with me. The Carbon Cub SS , the Spitfire MkIX, and the Mig 15. Enjoy them all.I also have the Deltaray, and the Archer (just bought) are with me as well. Love them all. But I think AS3X has spoiled me a bit. The Archer is a bit squirly to me. Was considering buying an AS3X receiver for it. What do u guys think?
