How heavy will it be? What kind of flying? What flight duration do you want? What will be the wingspan and wing area?
Have you got any batteries or motors already you want to make use of?

Hi Dean ,
Have you made any progress towards making a copy of the wot 4 for indoor flying

i have started on something which is a bit like a Wot 4 an own design which i think i will call the Damselfly it is based around some Rc Components which have proved to be good for indoor flying models up to 170Grams and a wing span of about 30" which is just about right for a small sports Gym .

Here is a list of the gear i used ,
Motor A1504 2200Kv , 12Amp Esc
Two 5Gram servos , Battery 220ma to 350ma 2s
Park fly receiver 35 MHz or a 2.4GHz
Just try and keep it as light as possible i am aiming for an AuW of 100 grams for the Damselfly which will have a wing span of 25".
Hope this helps , and keep us informed on you're build
