OrangeRX, Li-Po, servos, motor, prop, ESC... a bit more say $100 BNF, but it's a big cost to fun ratio!

Should I use these servos I found from some old plane? They don't work that smooth, but they could be ok.

I've only ever had one new plane. He rest either used (from second to fourth hand) or built.

A 4' x 8' sheet of 0.5" pink insulation foam is ten bucks. You can make a lot of wings out of one of those. Cover it in colored duct tape and you get a nice trim scheme while making it damn near bulletproof.

Motor
ESC
Battery
Servos
Prop

+ Whatever receiver you want... You're looking at around $40 plus materials.
