    Saw this online and had to build one. It's built from a single sheet of foam board. The plans are available free online and are in full size and tiled format. With a little patience you can have this done in about 6 hours, maybe less. It uses 2 9g servos and various motor/esc/battery setups. I'm almost done with it, all but the wheels and electronics.

    I screwed up a few times with the control horns but it should be a fun flyer. It's a slow flyer that can be flown in a small gym. It can be flown outside too but not sure about wind speed.

    I enjoyed this build.

    Finally got the electrics and all for this plane installed. The plane is controlled by the rudder and elevator. It took me a couple tries to get used to it but I finally got the hang of it. It flies nice and slow. I could even get it to the speed of a brisk walk. Equipped with a 1400KV motor and a 8 x 4 prop, it will almost hover. I think anyone with a small area to fly needs a plane like this.

    I suppose a photo of the innards is in order.

    After this plane, I'm a firm believer in prop savers.
