Default What can I make with these parts?

So I made a plane from Dollar Tree foam board and the dew point shot up when the sun set and its trashed, I have all the hardware laying around and I was looking into a ARF situation, I was really looking for V wing or something new to venture out in. I would like to keep it under 50.00 if possible.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

Here's what I have so far:

ESC: Turnigy dlux 20A SBEC Brushless Speed Controller w/Data Logging (2s~4s)
Motor: Turnigy L2206A-1650 Brushless Motor (130w)
Servo (x3): HXT900 9g / 1.6kg / .12sec Micro Servo
Battery (x2): Turnigy 1300mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack

Well... the dollar tree foam could probably be salvaged. Dampen and peel the paper then cover with clear packing tape.

If the plane you were making was appropriate for the power system then you should have a good guide as to what size and weight model is appropriate.

I made the Flite Test FT-22, little guy but fun. I would like something made from foam if possible, the dollar tree stuff is very fragile and I'm new to this hobby.

Hi Use 6mm Depron Foam or your just wasting your time with other cheapy foams, build the plane with 5 min or 30 min epoxy, dont use a lot of epoxy, and use 6mm square or round CF tube for the wing brace.

here you Go use the cheapest air mail from HK. and give the motor about 3 to 5 degrees of down thrust, normally no right or left thrust is needed on profile foamies
