The plane was made from a single sheet of Adams foam board purchased at Dollar General for one dollar. It is covered with packing tape. Flies well with thin wings that give little drag. All of the electronics are accessible. My plans are to use the plane for combat since it is inexpensive, has great performance and is quick and inexpensive to build. Also I may use it for close range FPV with FatShark goggles, a 100 milliwatt Tx and a pico camera for piloting and a keychain camera for recording in 720 HD.

The build should be obvious from the two images attached.

Watch a short clip of the "Dollar General" flying.

This flying wing is working out well. It has proven damage resistant along the learning curve, but is flying well as a stable aerial photography platform. Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I flew my new keychain 'spy' camera (808#16) on it at altitude, just before dark. Hope to mount my GoPro FPV equipment soon.

This post may be redundant since I just made an entry, that was "Submit New Thread". Haven't caught on as to how RCGroups works yet. Hope this post is of interest to some of the other members.

Joined RCGroups.com today, Tuesday, February 8, 2011.

Also flew my two FPV planes, the Eagle Wing, and the Hawk Sky. More wind than I wanted, but it went well!
