Having read through John Stennard's excellent feature article on converting a small indoor quad to look like a Harrier or F-35, I must admit to wanting to have a go.

I usually fly RC fixed wing so these small drones are all new to me.

The base drone mentioned in the article is a B-03 pro from

Does anyone know of a similar (suitable) small drone that is available from the UK. Not bothered about FPV. I have looked online and there seem to be hundreds of types but not all have the fan shrouds mentioned in the article.

Any help would be appreciated.

A different design but the same price as the B-03:

As a member of our club, John presented a talk on Monday about the history of VTOL. From WW2 to the present day, culminating in him flying a few of these designs around the room. Many of the club members were surprised just how well the models flew. I shall be seeing him Friday so if you would like any more information let me know. They are good fun and a simple build.

Thanks for the replies gents.


the drone you pointed to at Menkind looks good but doesn't have the fan shrouds. The shrouds look like a mini EDF unit.


I was wondering if another type of drone would be suitable as the one mentioned on John's article does not seem to be available to order from a UK supplier. Having done some more research I have ordered the following..(link)


Perhaps you could ask John if this would be suitable. I have a few ideas for different types of aircraft to model, some real , some sci-fi.

Thanks again.

Speaking to John tonight he said the drone you have purchased will work perfectly. He is also working on a part two of the article so keep an eye out for that. He would like to see your take on the idea once it's finished.

Thanks Jon.

Looking forward to part two of the article and will drop a message and some pics on this thread when I have come up with something that looks the part.
