Pony on sale at Hobby Lobby


I was window shopping and I came across this, for ten dollars:

http://www.hobby-lobby.com/rubber.htm

I ordered two. It looks like it might make a fun and attractive conversion...

Ehhh -- my daughter loves My Little Pony. She's 5 and My Little Pony is marketed just as strong in 2005 as it was back in the 80's.

Older but not wiser
Have been flying mine using an AF Firefly with a 2s 250 Li and two 4.2 g servos.
Got rid of all the weight I could, cut most of the tail skid off, left off the landing gear plus it's mount and the wood inside, got rid of most of the black plastic.
Flying weight is 2.8oz and it will fly in some wind but not alot,maybe 3 to 4 mph max.
Plan to fly it indoors this winter.
Have beat it up some trying to find the best CG, just glue back togather and go again.
I paid $15 for it this May, $10 would be even better.

How much does it weigh empty? The website lists 1.9 oz which is a little heavy for that size.

Thanks! If it flies that nice with all that "heavy" equipment, I should be able to make it float
