I built this out of spare parts and left overs from old planes.
No dollars were wasted on this build because none were spent.
The wings and tail are modified from a Phoenix 1600mm glider that a fellow club member had rammed into a lighting tower.
Fuselage is made up from 15mm thick blue foam which was salvaged from some packaging material that I found at work.
This was then covered with 30gpm tissue paper and painted with cheap rattle can enamel.
Retracts came from a Durafly Corsair and were pinned to stop them twisting 90deg.

Flies really well. Quite quick and only needs 1/2 throttle for most flying. Very maneuverable and slow flies well. Take offs and landing are a breeze.
All round this is a rather pleasant plane to fly at any speed.

Specs:
Wingspan: 1125mm
Weight: 1205grams
Motor, Turnigy 3536 1250 Kv
ESC, HK 50A
Prop: 9x5
Battery: 2200/4s
Servos, 9g with the elevator being metal geared.
