I just had the first flights of my first indoor electric control line model. If anyone wants a recommendation for a scratch build, this is it!

This is me flying mine : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DTS3TQ__lE

It's flying slow as I am using an RC Car pistol transmitter instead of a timer. It will fly significantly faster if needed.

This is the original : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8YeASAH6rM&t=7s

If you scroll down you will eventually get a link to the plan. My school French got me through the instructions, but I had to look up the translations of French words for things like bellcrank, which we didn't learn at school.

I didn't particularly like the original name ┬ÁBi-Elec mk2, so mine is called Kermit.

This is a well sorted design and a joy to fly. I changed nothing at all except for the motor as I couldn't source the ones mentioned.

Highly recommended!
