Out of Foam Board!
I was wondering, what is the cheapest rc giant scale plane possible? Since standard servos would need to be used, the plane would need to be 3 channel bank n yank. I couldn't think of many planes like that, but then I realized the Ercoupe had no rudder Again, just a hypothetical, but it might just be possible if built as frugally as possible. Also, the motor will have to be the minimum, and the wheels would have to be 3d printed to save costs. All the foam would have to be dollar tree foam board, because flite test foam would just be too expensive. The cost in printer ink for printing out the plans would also be considered, so black and white only The motor and ESC will likely be from Hobbyking since they have pretty low cost motors and decent ESC's, and the prop will have to be plastic since wood is more expensive. If enough people think this is possible as well, I may do this next year as a fun project.
