Default Coroplast Pizza Box Flyer

Does anyone have any experience with an e-power Pizza Box Flyer? Coroplast 24" square. I've seen these fly with Nitro power

I built these, they're easy to build and they fly OK for combat.

What turns the prop doesn't matter... its all power to weight and wingloading. Keep the weight reasonable and give it enough power and an e-power pizza box flyer would be just fine.

Do you have dimensions, CG, approx. location of motor, which motor, etc. etc? Is a pusher prop a must, or can a reg prop be turned around?

Are there any plans for this? What size motor? Is a pusher prop a must have or can a reg prop be turned to face forward? Sorry for the double post. Thought I had lost the first one

For the Pizza box glow-e conversion something about equal to the E-Flite Power 15 (the Pizza Box flys fine on a .15 ball bearing to .25 bushing bearing glow and the power 15 will outperform some .25 glow engines) will work. Go to the modern (lighter) mini servos and adjust locations of servos and battery to get CG. It'll fly just as good as the glow if not better.

Here's my electric P Box made from $ store foam and 19 in. square. I have some thin coroplast at 3/32 thick that would work well as it's much lighter than the more popular 1/8 in. stuff. About 24 in. square would work.
Mine is getting a little rough around the edges as we use them for combat.
