I'm quite new to free flight, and this was my first attempt at building a plane without a kit. I don't have access to my school gym often, so I decided to go for something close to ministick size, The Fly. I need to pick up better wood-selecting skills though, or at least try going to places other than Michaels, but since people make flyable planes out of bamboo skewers, I just got some 1/16 and 3/32 b-grain balsa sheets. The thinnest rubber I have left over from Science Olympiad is 0.0052", which from I've read is a bit thicker for ministicks, so I'm planning on buying some custom-cut rubber from Freedom Flight.
Here's one of the first flights around 300-400 winds on a 0.5 gram motor: https://youtu.be/3z5cUlKFIeE

It's a pretty rough build; no pretty laser-cut ribs and spars this time, but I'm proud of it Grin

Does anyone know where I can find plans for the Biscayne Babystick? I've seen it mentioned a couple times here, and some flights of it and I'm interested it in being my next project.

Just wanted to share my first non-kit plane!

Well that's not bad for a "rough build." It's good to see you doing your own thing from a plan.
Happy flying

Just posted the Biscayne MiniStick to the plans gallery, it might take awhile for it to be reviewed.

Thanks everyone for the kind words, and thank you so much for submitting the plans Ross! I'll keep an eye out for it.

Apparently the AMA owns the plans, but here is a link that should work.

Haha I hope so as well!

And the link worked, Ross, much appreciated! I hope to try and make my own prop for the first time for the biscayne, though for now I'm planning on just testing different rubbers and maybe other ikara props with The Fly.
