Description:The Micromaster is an attractive model of a biplane. I used several weight-saving construction methods that resulted in a low weight, given the complexity of the model. The Micromaster has enough speed to handle light outdoor breezes. It performs loops easily and flies inverted very comfortably. The addition of a rudder servo would increase aerobatic capability and only increase the weight to a bit more than 2.5 ounces.
