A lot of Blucor sheets and white board foam board from dollar tree..

I got a bundle of blucor and dollar foam sheets peeled and ready for my next build. I have a 200 dollar allowance for Christmas and after some debates as to what to buy my self, my wife has convinced me to spend it on RC equipment.

First, I need some imput as to what to build.

**This is what I have so far..
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=67
I built Golem's Plane-Blu F-22 and it flies great. I have assembled another foamy Mig 29 that is waiting on the electronics from the F-22.**


What I want is, something I can fly in my front yard. Something in the 24 in. size give or take a few inches. I want an airplane that can take off my drive way and can perform some hovering. Built out of bluecor or dollar tree foam. I would like if you could link me the pdf files of the build and choose me what motor, ESC, Bec and Battery to use for aerobatics.

All I need is power combos for one small foamy with 2 spare batteries and what's left of the 200 will be spent on a bigger motor for my Mig 29..


I hope is not too much to ask of you friends..

You may want to look through the plans available in the scratchbuilt foamies forum. There is a sticky at the top for free plans. I spent hours looking through all the plans there. Good luck!

i dunno about u but i would have chosen the plane first. the equipment u've chosen seems like it would go into a much larger plane than 24 in. .... for a 24 in. flat foamy shockflyer style u should be under 6 oz
