Dollar Tree Foamies

Saw a good supply of the 24" Life Like Learjet foam planes at my Dollar Tree store today. Had them run a price check for me. Turns out they're just $1.00.

Fly safe, fly often!

I have two of them - if yours are like mine you'll need to add a little weight to the nose to get a good balance. When you find the balance, mark the wing, then do the cutting, adding motor, servos, et cetera.

I believe that is similar to the plane I converted a while back. I replaced the tail surfaces with larger FFF ones. I took the challenge because few had had success with it. It looked good and flew o.k. It was also very tough. After a few flights I pulled the gear out and give it to the kids as a chuck glider.

Here's the video:

Construction details are earlier in that thread.
