Default Micro R/C

MY GOSH......I just watched Inside R/C and they covered an indoor micro event. Wowie, have they really gotten small. I thought I was a micro R/C enthusiast with my .049 and Cannon micro system. JEEZ.....I guess not. Any recommendations from you experts on where to and who to look up for more info on this amazing gear. Heck, I could sit in my recliner and fly around the living room with these little craft. I will be hoping to hear from those of you who have become efficient in this area. Thanks. Steve

hi Steve,

here's a few links to some sites that should keep you busy for a while

Paul and Ralph Bradleys site, long time builders and flyers: http://www.parmodels.com/
the South Leicester Aeronutz, some amazing micro models: http://www.aeronutz.flyer.co.uk/
Martin Newells site, he's got the current record for the lightest RC plane at .845 grams, ready to fly! http://mnewell.rchomepage.com/
this is the leading micro RC webzine, some of the best info is in here, but its not all free unfortunately: http://www.cloud9rc.com/index.asp
Gordon Johnsons site, all the motor, lipo, and actuator tests and info you'll ever need: http://home.comcast.net/~gordon-johnson/home.htm
Nick Leichty electronics, he's the absolute leader in the lightest micro RC electronics (a 3 channel, fully proportional RX that weighs .1 gram, for instance): http://microflierradio.com/index.html

i've got a LOT of other links with other good info, so if you want more, just let me know. i think i have just about every micro RC vendors site as well, so if you're wanting parts/electronics, i've got that too. beware, the smaller the plane gets, the more addictive the hobby gets!
