Default Well I just ordered my electronics for a homemade micro

I just ordered what I believe should make a reasonable micro.

GWS EDP-50XC (60grams thrust)
GWS ISC-100li (4a lithium esc)
GWS P4pII Reciever(4ch)
Cirrus 5gram servo(x2)
500Mah 7.2v lipo


I expect the all up weight to be somewhere between 2 and 3 ounces, wich will fit good with my thrust.

I'm trying to find a reasonable and durrable design. I'm looking to keep the prop safe so maybe something like an aerobird. Or a Bi-Plane with the prop in the middle between the wings. My aim is to proabably get flight speed something in the range of an aero ace or a bit faster.

Most the the equipment was a balance between price and weight.

i'm not familiar with a lot of pusher setup style planes. but, you could make a smaller version of the Stryker F-27 (assuming you can do elevon mixing on the RX or TX). if you do a search here on RCU for "pusher" or something similar, it'll probably give you some results for some good planes to go off of. let us know what you come up with.

I'm working out the details now for a Bi-Plane with the motor and prop inbetween the wings. I also have this crazy urge to order another servo to adjust the angle of attack for the wings. I think in such light loading I could pivot the wings at the leading edge somewhere pretty easily with a small servo. I could have a nice easy slow flyer and adjust the angle back flat for fun fast flight.
I just having to figure out if its a crazy idea that is good or bad.
