Best Sub $50 Scratchbuilt Combat Plane (Dollar Tree Foamboard)

I need a plane that is cheap, durable, and builds easily repairable for streamer and full-contact combat. It would be nice if it could be powered by a 2200 3s lipo as I have a TON of them. Also, I primarily use Dollar Tree Foamboard for scratchbuilding. Any suggestions?

The SEMFF Stingray is a great design.

You also can't go wrong with any flying wing design. The FT Versa Wing is a great design, although you can use just about any one of the many wing designs on this forum. For a smaller wing, I love the Dead Simple Wing (24 inch wingspan).

I've done combat with the Funbat/FT Bloody Wonder. It's a great design and flies really, really well.

I've built 3-4 Versa wings before with different power systems, from a slow setup as a beater, to a screaming fast setup that hauls at nearly 90 mph! I was just looking for something different to fly combat with against my friends and might just get some "on a budget" electronics for a Versa or KF flying wing.
