I have a very old, and very tatty small EFlite Viking that really neds retiring. So I am looking for recommendations for a suitable replacement model to use the dozen or so 3S 450mAh Lipos I have for it.

Foam, wood, ARTF, kit, PnP, BNF, happy with any, based on real world experience rather than over-promising adverts.

Bit ugly but flies well, can be steady or fast and aerobatic, looks better without the stupid canopy.

One of the many Flitetest mighty mini models would do the job nicely. I just got their Mini Sportster, and on a 3s it goes like shot from a gun, 4 ch, very aerobatic.

Does it have to be conventional layout ?

A simple delta from foamboard of about 20" span would work well for that size lipo.

Nope, unconventional is fine.

Hi MowerMan - I wondered if you'd recommend a nutball I recall it does fly rather well ......
