Default indoor pylon racing !?!?!?!

I have heard very little on this indoor racing.
I have been searching for weeks.
I just got a Nemesis one of the tiny ones.
I would like to know what people are racing.
Size of airplanes.
Types.
Anything!!


Thanks!

this little guy just came out: http://www.bsdmicrorc.com/productDet...64&catID=10003

it seems pretty nice, i've flown a similar version of it and it worked just fine. they havent updated their website yet, but BSDmicroRC.com will be soon carrying a little P-51 Mustang, and a GeeBee, both foam like the one in the link above, and both ready for the Plantraco equipment, they both seem to be doing rather well. i havent personally done pylon racing, but i'd imagine these planes are well suited for it.

We do some indoor racing; we use SuperFlyRC's 'Twin Fleas, Twin TurboFAn Fleas, etc', these planes are industructable, delta wing design, made of EPP foam, we have a blast with them, they are excellant indoor planes, we crash them all the time into each other, walls, people, you name it, and they keep on flying, ytou need to give one a try, there on the web at 'superflyrc'.

I did some indoor racing at the last NIRAC Indoor Champs. Flying Styro Strega/Rare Bear and Fantastic Models AT-6. GWS IPS-A and 2 cell li-poly. Flying weight from 6 to 8 oz. Reasonable cost and competitive for an indoor venue.

Smaller gets expensive fast and heavier gets too fast and carries too much inerita for reasonable indoor flying.

Best bet is to use a plane and power combo that is already popluar where you fly.
