Recycle-based Remote Controlled Plane

Farmers need to play too...check out this plane that my friend Dino Prashad and I made from an old foam glider I've had for years, a TINY electric motor I bought, and servos etc. that he already owned as an RC afficionado the last 31 years, plus recycled fishing pole tips and wooden kabok skewers for added strength in the wings and rear fuselage. I cut the winglets from the lid of a discarded margarine tub. The first planned flight a week ago got scrubbed by high winds, but yesterday the weather cooperated.....and BOY did our plane fly! Enjoy, John
