There's just not enough Oh's in SMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTH.

Beautiful, isn't she?
And like all great ladies, her graceful ways are evident the moment she takes to the skies.

The Minuette is designed to mimic the look and feel of those wonderful Edwardian flying machines that were flown by those magnificent men.


Building the wing is a snap as all of the ribs are laser-cut as part of our WEB-LOCK construction for proper alignment with minimum fuss.

If you want to go truly "old school", it can be built for simple 3-channel control (rudder, elevator and throttle). For even more control, the included ailerons can be made fully functional (4 channel control).

Although power can come from glow or electric powerplants, a simple 3s electric setup is really what the Minuette is designed around. We've created the fuselage with a huge top hatch so you have quick access batteries, radio, and it also hides the wing-bolts.

In the air, the Minuette is a simple, easy-to-fly cruising aircraft. Takeoffs are in just a few feet, even from grass runways. Once airborne, relax and gently glide her through the air through a series of low-passes, gentle turns, and even horizontal figure eights. With a 3200mAh battery, you can easily achieve 10+ minute flights with plenty of battery left for some touch-and-go's before landing.

The Minuette can even handle a bit of light wind without too much problem, and she is at her best taking off and landing into those gentle winds, if possible.

Please note that the Minuette is not designed (or stressed) for aerobatics. Also the removable flying wires in the Accessory Kit are decorative, and not needed to fly - just to look great.

Although this optional accessory kit is not necessary for the Minuette to fly, it does add a bit of "scale-realism". The flying wires and pylons are removable for easy transport of the wing and fuselage. It includes:

  • Ready-to assemble 3d printed dummy motor (based on the Anzani "W" 3-cylinder). It is designed and printed by Innov8tive Designs, and meant to slip over your electric motor, mounting to the firewall. Click here for more details on this motor kit.
  • Pre-bent upper and lower flying-wire pylons.
  • Anchors, removable flying wires, hooks, and shrink-tubing.
    Not shown:
  • Laser-cut profile pilot.
  • 4-color, peel-and-stick sticker sheet (pilot and instrument panel only).
  • Instruction sheet.
