Idea
Lifelike Foam Hydro ARTF....

Made from the Lifelike Kiddie pool surfboard .... about 2 feet long and wide enough so that you could add some little winglets on the side rears and a central fin and motor mount ... Made to float anyway and balanced correctly with some fins taped on , a fair glider.... Should easily fly with enough power.... and costs 2 bucks .... worth trying ???? Anyone on board ??? COWABUNGA...

Just in case, where did you find it, GPW? Might be a few "NOS" ones "floating" around

And here I go getting excited...I hope like H#ll it isn't the same factory as makes LifeLike train stuff..I cannot afford the really expensive train stuff and have used LifeLike for a long time.....spend some time working thier stuff over, and it looks good on my layout....
