Sky9pilot sounds like you need a 'scale Bee' in rubber!!! Cool

The 1st bee I built was a baby bee...03 powered 2channel....amazingly, dang thing flew, and when the engine ran dry, she turned into the most wonderful sail plane!

Definitely a fun design....you will see me build the one that is a duct fan....somewhere in the future~ Roll Eyes

I saw lots of those flying several years back.  An RC club I belonged to had a meet where the featured aircraft was the "Baby Bee" they were made of foam and used for combat with a streamer trailing off the tail of the fuselage.  They were some quick easy builds and fun planes that wound up abused and even treacherous  aerobatics to see what would happen.  When they crashed or experienced mid-airs they just pulled the rc gear out and trashed the remains.  They were pretty good flyers and surprised us with what they were able to do!  Thanks for the memories!

Talk about a puzzle fee sure Shocked....a hatch could be done, but these little bloggers are almost on the ground, so I think it would get smooshed....but once together, she shouldn't need anything more.
All that's needed is the windscreen, and gas tank mounted to the wing....oh and Mickey Mouse wheels!

No way to put a hatch on the bottom of the fuselage?  You're smart to put a charging jack and switch onboard.  I'm sure she'll be a great flyer.

Built her back in Covid days, now gonna complete her...3ch, PAW 03 diesel, almost done. The thing is a puzzle being so small. I'll have to put the battery in kinda permanent, so a switch and charge cord will be installed.
