Well ok since I was working with the Dollar Tree stuff I decided to make a F-22, just to try something a bit different. I think it's comming along.

Well ok I decided to turn the last fomie into a night flyer. I put red LED's on the front underside of the wings and a single blue one in the rear. It's not too hard to fly at night or at least not as hard as I thought. I might need to add one on the top side, when I bank the plane you do lose sight of the underside. Other than that it's a blast to fly at night. My first night flight was last night, I ran two batteries just to check it out... Looks like we have a winner...

Okay here is how it happened: One of my buds wanted a plane when he saw my fomie, so I said we would build him one if you bring over the guts...between the two of us we had enough parts to build a couple. I got a piece of EPP for his plane, and he picked up some fome from Dollar Tree. To make a long story short, we built his plane and I played around with the thin dollar tree stuff. Well I peeled the paper off and through the pattern on it and BINGO the two dollar plane is born. I could almost get it done with one piece, but not quite so I did use two. they 20"x30"x1/8''. I flew it yesterday and it did great. I need to brace the tail but other than that it is a great cheap plane... not bad for a overnight airplane...
