This one is made from some generic inexpensive paper-covered foamboard bought in a dime store (good "find"). She's equipped with a Dualsky (2dogrc) 2223EA-14T 0.8oz outrunner with GWS 7x3.5 prop, 2s850 lipo, Thunderbird-9, XPS Rx, and two HS-55 servos. Used a "Y" pushrod on top so that one servo could operate both elevators.
