This is as easy as i have EVER seen! You can make it out of dollar tree foam and i believe there are only 4 parts. You can build a new one quicker than you can repair one.

If not this I have to agree with the above from birdofplay
That Warp 9 looks good !

While waiting to get your RC components , you could build a foam Super Easy chuck glider . That will give you practice doing airframe construction , and if you can get a chuck glider to glide well ..... it will make transitioning to RC much easier . The two most important things for an SE chuck glider are : proper CG balance ( adding a nose weight & moving it forward or rearward ) , and reflex ( adjusting up elevator more or less ) . Reflex pushes the tail down and nose up ...... like keeping the tips of water skis above the water .

An SE chuck glider will not have a long flat glide ...... a good glide angle to strive for would be about 10º or 15º . If there is a hill you can glide down , that would be great .... especially if it has a vegetation-cushioned landing area .

Just saw this thread and laughed at this but a more appropriate theme music would be mission impossible. Because, if Balsa or Carbon should decide to accept this mission.....which he is the kind of guy that will....he will see to it that the new rc pilot will be flying and the mission will be completed.

BorC, they always skip the chuck glider , but that’s where the BASIC learning happens …
