There is another thread that I've been following in which a Russian pilot builds similar, but larger planes using carbon fibre and a plastic covering: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1158259

Not suggesting that you do it, but someday I'd like to see someone build two "identical" airframes. One in foam and plastic like you did, and one like he does his. Then to see how they compare in weight, durability, stiffness, drag, aerobatics, etc.
