Community Showcase


Have you seen this Mini Speedster Bi-Plane yet? Forum member, flyin201, has made some mods on this mini but mighty plane and now it is flying significantly better, which allows for acrobatic maneuvers. Here’s the current specs and keep your eyes peeled for plans in the future! 

  • The final project has a wingspan of 24” with a chord of 4”.
  • The fuselage is a total of 3” longer than the Mini Speedster—2” longer in the tail and 1” longer in the nose.
  • It now has ailerons on all four wings.
  • The bottom wing has a 0 degree incidence while the top wing has 2 degrees positive incidence.
  • Larger tail section.
