My GWS Slow Stick on steroids (no dihedral wing with ailerons, sheeted bottom and CF spar):

KD A22-20L (about 200W with APC E 12x3.8) = $19 from UnitedHobbies

hexTronik 15A ESC (at the time of purchase it was rated as 18A) = $9 from UnitedHobbies

Tronics 1250mAh 15C cells assembled in 3S pack with balancing tabs = $18 from TronicsHZ (purchased about a year ago)

Total: less than $50 for a 200W power system!

Budget speed powertrain:

ARC110 motor (lightflightrc approx $32)
Thunderbird 18 ESC (lightflight has them too as a combo with above)
lipolites 3S-1320 from stevenaero or similar
4.1x4.1 APC prop.
other electronic as you choose.

Put it in something reasonably stream line, like a microjet or speedwing and you have great performance at a reasonable price. Just make sure the components get some airflow.
