I built the plane as a kit from Stevens Aeromodel <http://www.stevensaero.com/StevensAero-S-POU-V2.4-Micro-RC-Kit-SAK-SPOU-2.4-p-20354.html> . I built it stock… well, OK, my wife created the one small “scale detail” – the authentic early-1900’s pilot’s scarf! The model uses the usual Parkzone 2.4Mhz DSM2 all-in-one (rx, esc, servos) board. It’s flown once at the Miramar College fieldhouse. It flies OK but tends to porpoise a bit. Maybe that’s due to the odd method of pitch control. Instead of an elevator, the “elevator servo” changes the main wing’s angle of incidence. The full-scale aircraft was designed by Frenchman Henri Mignet. According to this Wikipedia article <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mignet_Pou-du-Ciel> , “The Flying Flea (Pou du ciel literally “Louse of the Sky” in French) is a large family of light homebuilt aircraft first flown in 1933.” There’s some pictures of the full-scale flea here <http://www.popularaviation.com/FlyingFlea/PhotoGallery.asp?Page=1>.
