Am I dreaming?Or could this be the best plane out there?

Heres what i am thinking of. 1/4 inch foam wing ribs, and tail, covored in Colored saran wrap, geared spd 400 with 9 inch slow flyer prop. 36 inch wingspan with a fully simetricle airfoil. stick fuse. with 7 cell pack and HS55 servos. can be flown indoors and out, very aerobatic and moderately slow. and most of all, EASY AND CHEAP to build. I will challenge all of you to this challenge.I have alot of 1/4 inch pink foam and about 4 rolls of diferent colored saran wrap. Anyone got any ideas? Im goin to my workshop to work on it right now!

um, that would be the foam rib tiny posted earlier, but with an overly heavy powerplant attached...

Sounds like a larger version of the BluCor Tiny!

It's a blast, and darn near indestructable!

Of course it still looks fine! It flies great! All that's happened is a few little tears in the botton covering from a hay field landing, where I thought it was softer than it was. a little tape and it goes again! Made the L/G and Vstab removable, held on with a rubber band, so it'll fold flat to stay in the back of my truck for an emergency calm-wind moment!
