Does anybody know where to find a good miniature airplane for teaching lessons? pilot shops in my area only have airplanes either too tiny or expensive. i wish to find a cessna or seminole in about 1 ft wingspan. thanks.

I'd like to know where to find a nice model, too. I bought a die-cast model awhile back and, well, part of the wing broke off as I pulled it from the box.

It appears that asa no longer makes a hard plastic model airplane with hinged control surfaces.

I am sitting next to a couple of them now, but I can't find any on the web.

I had the same problem trying to find an airplane with movable control surfaces that did not cost $100. Finally found a soft plastic airplane at the local hobby store that did not have movable flight controls, but I was able to cut them. Sorry, it's kind of generic so I don't have a name or contact on the airplane and threw out the packaging long ago.

I used to have one of those planes that you would hook to the ceiling and they would spin around when you turned it on--that had about a 12" wingspan... And it was only about $10 :D
