Arlrcr writes – “I design and “MAKE” flying (high performance acrobatic) radio control electric airplanes from recycle-able materials. Primarily corugated cardboard, foam meat trays popsicle sticks, coffee stirrers, bits of wire, Tape, food shrink wrap, etc. The model airplane community does’nt seem to “get it”, but perhaps the MAKE community will!”Link.

    Nice pictures, how about some details? Is RC required? How much could you do without it? How about a goodby-fly: wind it up and set it free.

    Way cool though…

    Of course the model airplane community doesn’t “get it” — you’re not using overpriced balsa, foam and epoxy that the magazines (and their advertisers) consider to be essential….keep up the good work!
