Yes, I have bought a big foam Glider.

After watching the video and seeing how cheep i could get one for i thought i might as well get one to see if i could convert it to Rc.

So i received a box from MenKind measuring 15" x 6" x 30" .
Oh goody i thought inside this box was a smaller box 10" x 6" x 21".
Oh and a free bag of Haribo Starmix.
With discount code i paid £8 + £3 p+p.
So opening the box the model i got is Similar to that in the video.
But with different shaped fins and wing but looking more space age.
Sadly it is made out of styrofoam and already has dints in it.
So the challenge will be to see if i can convert it to Radio Control.

I do like the shape of the Body.

Should be plenty of room for battery and radio gear.

The Plane.

Ok so i will have to glass the parts to help stop further dents.

But here is what i am thinking ...........

Two pusher motors behind the two mid wing fins , they should be able to provide yaw as well as thrust.

Cut away the control surface and make new .

I will also have to add carbon tube for support in the wings .

Hmmm.... some more thinking i will do.
