    I built a micro a few years ago with some micro gear and a piece of basswood, it was fun on our smooth garage floor in the winter.

    Penguin fuselage on a kids sled from Walmart. Works great on pavement, water, snow, grass! Even built a roll-bar for when it flips over on the ice covered pond at work. Equipped with pan/tilt and a 5.8 vtx.
