Best Foam Toy Glider?

Hi Group!
I am looking for a good "chuck" glider to convert to electric rc.
I have looked at the Air Hogs Titan, the Guillows Flying Eagle, and a few others. Has anyone done this? Any recommendations?
Thanks!
Mike

Air Hogs Titan (man this thing really is huge!) now available at Walmart for $6.30 online. I bought 2 of them last week...both were packaged poorly and had small pieces broken (easily fixed) but Walmart decided to let me keep them and sent me 2 MORE Titans free of charge, and gave me a 20% discount on my order for my trouble.

Wondering what kind of heck I can raise with 4 of these beasts

Combat. You and 3 peers messin' up the sky, trying to knock each other down.
Cheap fun.
