Micro Build
I'm considering building a micro Staggerwing Beech which would have a
17.5 " wingspan. My problems: where to find a motor, ESC, and receiver to fit a plane this small. I would appreciate any help on this.

Search RCG Classifieds for guts from crashed E-Flite umx Beast if you're looking for budget solution. Our look at the parts going into their soon to be released Pitts S1. It has a 17" wingspan I think. May be overpowered for your needs but give you an idea for the motor. Just an idea that popped into my head at this bleary-eyed hour. ..

There are plent of options for micro RC, for instance:

2.7gram receiver: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Receiver.html

1 gram ESC: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ontroller.html

4.2 gram outrunner: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_2900kv.html

Try BSD Micro for all things small. Give them a call and they will work out which parts will work best for you. I think they are still in business.

By the way 17.5 inches in a biplane is not hard to do. I have a biplane with a six inch wingspan from them that flies great in a bedroom.

Rabbitcreekok bipe reference
Please give more details on your 6" bipe or tell us where you have posted it.
I'm very interested in such a flyer for indoor flying this coming winter....we have a very small area in which to fly and the NightVapor has been the main stay.
