So, I have issues. Someone shows me something cool, I get obsessed, I have to build it.

I have SO MANY projects right now - I SHOULD walk away from this one --- but? I have the perfect .010 ready for it

the Plan:

Someone had posted photos and videos of it, may have been at Small 7 years ago. @Kim might know. Someone in France made an electric RC version of it. He could control its altitude, but that is about it.

Far out Charles. .010 sounds like a Bumble Bee mad as a Hornet. Lite the fire then run. R/C version is safer.

Flight report soon?

I built the Roto Riser that is an .049 version that was in Ken Willard’s book, Eight Easy Projects for 1/2 A engines…Flew it dozens of times and was surprisingly stable…. Ken’s version had a trim tab on the spoiler to help control climb….I had a broom stick with a nail in the top for a launcher…. It auto rotates very nice on the way back down….. It wore out the Black Widow flying out of sandy cotton fields….Yes, build and fly it…. Mayhem guaranteed…. Very Happy

Yeah, right on @Kim! The Charybdis was nice, but all of them were fantastic and wild! Thumbs Up
(But it didn't match the mayhem - great escape  Laughing at your last S.M.A.L.L. escapade). lol!
