Depends upon how "Lazy" you want to get. I have discovered what I consider an extreme lazy flyer in my 1941 Cabin Playboy, an old timer I built from a kit from New Creations (the Aveox kit). For power I used a packaged system from Dymond consisting of a 550 with in-line gear box, yoke, spinner, and proper prop all for only $70. The bat pack is 8-1000's.
It will ROG in 10 feet, climb out at 35-45 degrees and once up there, dial in a few clicks of rudder, set the xmtr down and go get a coffee ( I have actually done this ). A real frequency pin hog.
You can repeat the climb outs as many times as your buddies will allow you to hog the frequency.
The Playboy has become one of my favorites.
