Burger King styrofoam cup plane challenge

So I got bored and realized that I had a few extra styrofoam cups at the same time. I've got the guts out of my old sukhoi, so I'm going to attempt to make a functional rc plane out of about four or five cups. So far I've got a wing, cut in such a way as to use the natural curve of the cup to create an undercambered airfoil, and washout.

Get enough cups and plates and you'll have this.
And if you have guests over....

Yeah, I know it's not for indoor use!

Drew a rough sketch of the fuselage, and cut it out.
