micro mite as a first time project?

#1
Hi,
im fairly new to RC so i started scratchbuilding with a few foamies, but now i fell in love with micros..
after a lot of reading i decided to try my luck with a Micro Mite from PARModels as a starter into balsa and micro models.

motor: (Mabuchi M20) i only found this one. is that the right one?

reciever: i cant find the JMP Combo reciever, the manufacturers page seems down

antenna: i cant find the azar M72 at all

the actuators can be selfmade, ill try using this guide and this video from micro_builder (more guides etc welcome).

So any tips on sourcing these parts in germany or micro resources in general are very welcome!

has micro scratchbuilding changed with the popularity of micro drones? are the motors from the micro drones viable for micro planes?

Yup! Note that the smaller ones are mainly brushed, so you need a suitable controller. If you get drone motors, try and get them as a set with the propeller so you don't need to do any complicated calculations.
