If you keep the span down the small linear servos should cope at low speeds. The cheap WLToys brick is probably better if you have access to a FlySky transmitter.

Another couple to try:
The new Flitetest.com mini Arrow wing, plans up soon.
Or the30 inch Flytrap: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...hlight=flytrap

Both available for glider or low powered use (brushed geared motor off the brick).

I made a cheap hot wire cutter using a dimmer switch and a 12v battery charger. First wing cut was a 2 layer foam that I hand cut LE and TE using 1.88" wide blue painter's tape as a guide.
