Download plans for the Micro Drake
Thayer Syme designed his Micro Drake seaplane around ParkZone’s 2.4GHz submicro equipment as introduced in their Minium Cessna Centurion. This diminutive flying boat spans 16 inches and weighs a scant .6 ounces. The Micro Drake will take off from a smooth surface such as a gym floor, and can even lift off the water in zero wind conditions. Download the plan offered here, and build your own Micro Drake for your backyard pool or the local school gym.
