I suspect 99 cent stores pre-date my arrival in the US, even if that was in the last century
But I get the idea. My 'pocket money' about covered an 'Airfix' 1/72 scale 'plastic model' or half a KeilKraft flying kit.
Which they never did when I'd done with them...
If you fancy a change from Comet, etc, I can recomend the 'House of Frog' at: http://www.houseoffrog.co.uk/
for some alternative 1950s FF kit plans. My 'Raven 2X' started there oddly enough, and I know of a guy who did the twin tailfinned 'Linnet' at 200% for REM control a couple of years back. I have their 'Tomtit' biplane under 'drawing and doodling' right now.
The 32" Raven 2X has a Spektrum AR5300 and ittybitty micro servos but mostly because they weren't doing anything else when it got built. There's plenty of room and weight allowance for a regular small 2.4 RX and two micro servos. The motor's silver, weighs 25gm and overpowers her at 70W or so - around 45 - 50 watts makes her fly like she should, I guesstimate. With present day micro gear, scaling her up 2X probably was a waste - could have gotten more attention if I'd scaled it down 2X!
That Jeep has to be about as minimal a structure as possible!
