If you just want a romp around foamie, could you try a wing like the Unicorn? I have one and it take two servos, a 400 motor and a three channel radio. It glides wonderful if you leave it the 48 inches that it comes with, I have even found thermals with mine and flew it until I was tired of looking up, when you bring it down for a landing if you bring it in close and stall it right in front of you, you can just reach out and catch it, I've done it a number of times! Any way it is one option that you might consider. you can find them at Unicorn.com

maybe you could get a depron 3d plane and sort of "tone it down". Center teh rudder and secure it, grab one extra servo so you have two for teh ailerons, and attach em with a Y harness. Then put the 3rd servo on the elevator. 3rd channel - throttle. fancyfoam.com planes are built to use GWS Gearboxes...

of course, a better idea would just be to spend the money and get the proper radio, servos and maybe a brushless system and you'll never fly any of your other planes again
