    Small flying space a/c recommendation

    Hey all,

    I live on a cul de sac and am currently looking for a small aircraft that can use that airspace for acrobatics and some 3D. I'm looking for that median between indoor aircraft and outdoor.

    I found this build thread for just this airframe, but it would cost too much to get the depron foam so im looking for a kit. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1046798

    Anything similar that you guys would recommend?

    Thanks

    RE: Small flying space a/c recommendation

    I just was looking online yesteday for a cheap EPP foam 3D plane. Came across this Techone Spirit that is being offeredon saleby www.84hobby.com

    I haven't received it yet, but all the reviews I've read and videos that I've watched looks like a great plane expecially for under $40. The best part is that it's made out of EPP foam so it will be very durable. I have a couple wings from CrashTestHobby made from EPP and the stuff is almost bulletproof.

    Here's a link to the plane that I'm buying, but if you want something smaller, check out the other ARF planes or complete packages from www.84hobby.com

    Hey freiguy- that's EXACTLY what I'm looking for!

    What do you think of the Aeolus?

    RE: Small flying space a/c recommendation

    Great looking planes but you could also try the Hobbyking Matrix out as it is one sweet looking plane and Hobbyking have that many planes,batteries and spare parts you really wouldn't need to go any where else to shop i live in the UK and i get most of my planes and parts from HK now and i only wish someone had pointed them out to me when i first got into the hobby a good few years ago
    Here is a link for the Matrix just in case you want to check them out.

    Startazz- thanks a lot for the suggestion. It looks like a good find. Do you have one?

    I ended up with the techone Aeolus and have it mostly put together. I will write a review once I get it airborne!
