Am I dreaming?Or could this be the best plane out there?
Heres what i am thinking of. 1/4 inch foam wing ribs, and tail, covored in Colored saran wrap, geared spd 400 with 9 inch slow flyer prop. 36 inch wingspan with a fully simetricle airfoil. stick fuse. with 7 cell pack and HS55 servos. can be flown indoors and out, very aerobatic and moderately slow. and most of all, EASY AND CHEAP to build. I will challenge all of you to this challenge.I have alot of 1/4 inch pink foam and about 4 rolls of diferent colored saran wrap. Anyone got any ideas? Im goin to my workshop to work on it right now!

Ill post some video footage (if it flies well )
ermm: apart from the saran wrap, stick stuff and some more stuff then...

Of course it still looks fine! It flies great! All that's happened is a few little tears in the botton covering from a hay field landing, where I thought it was softer than it was. a little tape and it goes again! Made the L/G and Vstab removable, held on with a rubber band, so it'll fold flat to stay in the back of my truck for an emergency calm-wind moment!
