Small does not mean slow,the smallest is the micro butterfly from plantraco,150$,3.5in wing span,but is sorta fast.
The slowest is the parkzone vapor,129$,14in wing span,and can fly in the smallest areas.

My vote is for the Vapor as well. Absolutely the slowest most controllable indoor plane for the money has been my experience.

I noticed you also posted a request about a helicopter earlier. I would suggest that you buy either the vapor or the mCX rtf, and the other as a bind and fly. Both use the same TX. One will cost about 120 dollars and the other around 100. Alternately, if you have a 2.4 receiver, buy each as a bind and fly.

I have had all of the planes mentioned in this thread, and the vapor is the best slow flyer, bar none. I have seen most of the helicopters for indoor and this is hands down the easiest to fly and the most reliable. I think these are the two best options for indoor flying. I own them both and see no need to look further. And I had to order them from overseas!! (I live in SE Asia)

Go with the Vapor very fun and aerobatic. I bought both the BNF versions of the vapor and MCX then bought a 6xi radio because I know I'm giong to buy more BNF micros down the road.

I think you're looking for a GWS GloStick (Red w/ Iron cross on the tail and wings, also comes in yellow/green/brown as a slope glider), the $35 version comes with a speed 480 brushed motor, the older kits have an aluminum fuse, newer ones it's carbon but they cut it in half and include a cheezy plastic connector, I'd invest in a new carbon fuse that isn't cut. You have to provide the receiver, battery, servos and radio. There is also a ~$50 version w/ brushless motor included. Use 3M packing tape instead of the included GWS stuff. Google up 10 must do mods for SloStick, it really helped. I already had ythe dihedral built in but added ailerons, great trainer and lots of fun.

Zrat,
the vapor can fly in a great room.(of your house)
Your not gonna pull that off with a slow stik. The slow stik is an excellent plane ....... love mine...
but as far as indoor, you need a gymnasium.

my son has a vapor and it's killing me cuz I want one too!

1: 15-20+ minutes depending on the pilot.
2: Buy a bicha charger or the "blade mcx usb charger",you may be able to charge with your triton on its lowest rate,but you will need to make an adapter.
3:Move the control rods to their innermost positions,move the batterie mount to ring in fount of the control board.
