Something cheap like this might work; I flew an E-Maxx boxed set of 2000 packs that were supposed to be Sanyo, they flew like Duratrax Sanyos:

I’ve flown the red, white, and blue plane below with the above; Global’s 56” American Flyer a heavy .40 ARF. The other are my other 40 ARF conversions, see my gallery: http://rcgroups.com/gallery/showgall...stype=2&si=jrb
