Small planes

Recently its been too rainy or windy to fly my conventional RC planes.

So - purely for fun of it - I made a tiny plane from one of those cheap wind up balsa wound airplanes, plus a microplane receiver-servo pair and micro motor.

My brother quickly found that someone else aready did it. Kill joy.

Pictures below.

So how did it turn out?

The short version: it worked.

What worked:

What took a bit to get right

What didn't work?

Where to next?

I'm planning on going a few steps up in larger balsa wood planes and styrofoam gliders. And only on rainy days.
