Default RE: micro scratch builders

ok call me crazy, but i was just thinking of how sweet it would be to make a flyable version of some of the ships from the game wipeout hd on the ps3. i love the game and a micro sized flyable version of one would be sweet. here are some pics of the cooler looking ship. any ideas on how to make one of these fly? you can tell from looking at them that they wouldnt produce much lift if any, but think of the how sweet it would be to have one flying around in your yard or at a park!!!

the frist one in the line of picks is the most likely of all of them to fly looks like it would produce the most lift.

lol its funny you should choose that one seeing as it is the one i use most in the game and win the most races with lol. i have a feeling building one as a flyer is going to require a brushless setup. im going to attempt building one as soon as i get some more foamboard. im pretty sure that building the assegai ship (the one in the first pic) im going to have to make it to use a pusher prop setup, unless i could find 1 or 2 tiny ducted fan units that use brushless motors. its gonna be a project

i never did get started on that wipeout build, but im currently debating on building either a micro firebird commander, micro bobcat 50, or micro funjet. anyone seen any plans for any of these? if not i should be able to draw some plans up for one. as far as ease goes i think the firebird would be the easiest to build, but as far as looks go i think the funjet has the best overall apperance. what would you guys like to see?

Does anyone know what the static thrust of those micro geared motors, particularly the micro 4 site geared motor? I am building a little plane but I think it might be on the upper end of the weight limit for one of these little motors. I might half to go with a next size bigger motor.

Guys here is a shot of my scratch built Cessna 195. I built this from a set of 3 views. It has the Ember equipment and is all balsa construction. Flies great just a bit faster than a Vapor.

Hello guys,
 Im starting my first scratch build ever. its looking good to me so far. the nicest thing about it is that i haven't invest a single penny to build it.. but being a first timer i thought i would share some pictures and see what y'all think of it. its a micro scale cessna( father was a PP and i had the opportunity to be at the controls of his 182 and so i decided to make one for him) so take a look and tell me what ya think. open to suggestions and even constructive criticism. (first day as a member on this site so might not be posting picture right so in a case of epic failure just take a gander at my gallery.
