What do you do with a foam glider, a model rocket tube, and a 50mm EDF?

Make a powered Frankenglider! After the photo was taken, I relocated the EDF below the tail boom, because the thrust was causing a pitch-down moment. It has since been maidened - a very stable flier, had no problems with winds, and it drifts and settles down with no power, rather than glides. I just added a functioning rudder tonight.
