Nice flying Dave. What is that, something you've scratch-built?

Yeah Pete, it is a dollar store foam board, cut it up and glue together. Only have a dollar invested since I had all the electronics already. Flys pretty good for something I made.

Thanks Uwe,
Since I don't have much in it, I fly it like I stole it. Lots of fun to fly.

Thanks Mark, it is a blast to fly and you can try almost anything. I have crashed it a couple of times and done no damage. You can do high alpha stuff or fly fast like a plane. It doesn't like much wind since it is a big poster board.

:D Awesome :D Great build and video Dave :!: You are correct... the price of this one is right! What electric components are needed for a build like this?
I have some "extra" micro electric components lying around, and have been entertaining the idea of throwing together some kind of micro indoor flyer using that dollar store styro poster board also, maybe some thing like a stik style. But I know nothing about electric power or whats needed, I fly gas and glow power and enjoy building

Hey Mike, I have 2 9g servos on it. One for the rudder and one for the elevator. I am using a 2s 1000 mah spare battery from my helo. I went to grayson hobby and got the MJ3 combo for the power. It includes most everything you need for foamies. Its a real good motor for foamies and when I get tired of cheap-n-easy I can use this combo on most anything. I think the motor combo was like 40 dollars.
