So I already posted in the wing section of RCGroups and it can be found here.

But my goal is build a wing from dollar tree foam for my micro stryker guts. Its not going to be a blistering fast wing that is built for speed like the stryker is. But more of a slower wing with a much higher glide ratio with the possibility of attaching a stripped 808 cam to the front for some fun.

I have a little more research to do with the wing CoG and such. Then to figure out shape, thickness and electronics placement. Then I have to play around with the dollar tree foam as I have never tried to use it before and Im broke so no EPP for more But it cant get much cheaper than a couple sheets of $tree foam, some elmers glue and some sand paper. Already have some carbon rod hanging around, all the electronics and plenty of time. Now to do a little research.

Well the slow stick doesn't exactly balance out with a 1300 3s so its grounded till next week when my 2200s show up.

In the mean time I have received a few boxes. I have a hand full of Mad Dog 150mAh 1s for my mSR, several servos and a rx for a yet to be "determined" foamie.

And for the next 5 days I am playing house guest for my buddys dog. But he likes water so hes fine by me

I cant seem to stay away from these planes. So I bought another one so I can get back to some flying fun.

Now to figure out how to mount my GoPro...

So after several fun flights and close calls I brought the Micro Stryker inside and put it on the counter. Well I wasnt paying attention and I set it next to a candle and a few minutes later all was toast.

Does anybody know of any airframes that the servos/motor/esc board will fit into?
