Sky Riders 36" Patriot Foam Glider

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/1/1/...am-glider.html

on clearance at my local BB&B (Keystone, Indianapolis) for $3.49 so I got one to play with my 3 year old son.

This thing is probably not EPO but is very sturdy and has very good finish. It definately has potential as a small inexpensive RC plane. Ducted fan maybe...?

It glides nice too!

Similar but not the exact same wings and fuselage. The Patriot's wing span is only 3 feet and it's costs a third of Walmart's plane.

I am spending half year in IN - half year there.
