who says slopers are expensive?

not sure if this fits in the category, but here's my $4 1.6 meter sloper- made from dollar tree foam, tape, and hot glue. flies great, was slightly tail heavy in the video. flight in video was in only 8 knots, and it flew fine, even though it was a little tail heavy, as you can see by the "interesting" landing. (magicsteve46 on the controls). seemed like it would fly fine in higher winds as long as you ballasted it. i also made a smaller (30") version which was in a thread on rcgroups.
(sorry guys, crappy internet here in the bedroom, will have to upload the video in the morning)
