Default small racer??

Hello,
I'm looking for a plane with a wingspan around 12-16'' weighing 7-10oz. It would be for electric.

Thanks

humm, I think that size would be a 1/2A size plane? Like those that combatpig flies.
I don´t know about any racer that size, but I think you would get a quick answer to that question in the 1/2A forum

This electric should be small enough for you

I remember seeing a small reno racing type P-51 mustang a long time ago at a place here called R/C dymond.


I think it was made out of fiberglass, or composite, and it couldnt have been been more than a 12" wingspan.

It had swept tear drop shaped wing tips, and tips of the elevator and rudder.

I didn't get anymore info on it, and that place is now gone. But it always sticks in my head, because it was really cool looking.

I can only imagine trying to control it! lol..

Well, since you posted this in the extreme prop speed planes forum, I'll have to assume you want it to go FAST.

If you are near San Diego this coming weekend (5/5 to 5/7/06), the Mid Winter Electric Festival will have a Micro Electric Pylon racing event. These will probably be the fastest micro size planes.

1/2 A or speed 400 class planes are around 27"-30" span. The micro class will be in the size that you are interested in.

Go check out the High Performance forum under electric planes at RCGroups.com

Info for the Electric Festival is also on the RCG site
