I'll be fleshing this thread out but I wanted to get it started while I finalize the plans. For those that have followed my updates on Facebook, Instagram, other threads, or went to FF15 then you've heard about my Sonic Series at some point recently.
The Sonic Series will be a set of 650mm planes that will run on the Mighty Mini setup all the way to the 4s HK FunFighter electronics. I beta tested my first prototype at FF15 with the FunFighter setup and it rips around at over 100mph. It was turning heads all over the place with how fast and quiet it is. A crowed gathered every time I landed to ask me about what I was flying.
Here are some pictures from FF15.
Take off sample:

Beginner – You’ve never flown a plane before, let alone done a scratch build
Can I use my Mighty Mini powerpod and electronics?
Yep! This build uses normal 9g or 5g servos like the Mighty Minis as well as the same power plant. If you're using an original MM powerpod there will be some shimming needed to get the right fit as the Sonic Series planes have a wider fuselage. I've also included plans for a larger pod as well if you'd like to build one.
Will there be a build video?
Possibly. I will have step by step photos in this thread and potentially a build video.
How scale is the Sonic Series nnP-39?
All proportions are scale except the vstab. I increased it by about 10% for stability.
Is this a good plane for a beginner to fly?
No. It is an advanced build and requires an intermediate pilot to fly.
I only see a speed wing in the plans, will there be a basic wing also?
There is a plane I want you to design, what’s the best way to suggest it to you?
