Yeah, and I'll get on with my Polaris. I did like the mini-cassut, though.

I'll draw it up for you if you want Reg. Just in case. ;D

Gord,
 I downloaded the DIY plans for it, thanks. Maybe I'll do it anyway, although it might be a bit too much for indoor:

Reg, I've got a couple of NIB AR6410NBL bricks I ordered by mistake. I paid $20 + tax and would like to get $20 each. However, if you shop around, you can order them even cheaper.

So Gord - 16" span and a single cell battery? If 16" is a minimum, then things can't get silly.
(Hmmm......I have some decent drawings for the Lil Mongster biplane which won at Reno around 1967.)
 I think that rather than worrying about a race, we might work on just getting a "parade" together.

Gord;
I thought you might like this, you can buy it at home depot, but you need a long cord. Looks like the son of Sumo.

Martin:
Thanks, but if I go to a brick I think I might as well get one with servos integrated.

Cool little plane Reg. My kind of plane as it looks like it has beer cans for wheels. ;D
  That would work too Martin. One I like is the Mong Racer 2. At least we'd have two to fly.

    You could cheat a little Reg with the plane as nobody is going to take measurements. Well I might bring my fishermans ruler. ??? Just by lightening it up it would fly great. For instance they show a 10 gram motor. The one I'm putting in the micro Sumo is a 5 gram motor and the servos they show are over 2 gram and the linear ones are 1.5 grams or therabouts if I remember right. Lightweight is the secret. I have an extra rcvr with the 2 linear servos built on it and a plug in for an aileron linear servo. Here's those parts in a Kittycat..
   Cmon Gary. You need to trash your Beast and put the guts in one of these and buy a new Beast :D
   By the way, this is how I felt after my sister's Christmas dinner. ::)
