Default Good Aeroplane for $20.00

I bought one of these at Big Lots for twenty dollars the other day and it included a battery but this version did not have wheels. I thought it flies fine for what it is. I recall reading a thread from the original designer that refered to removing the horizontal tail as that only was added by the marketing folks... would explain the tail heaviness. I reckon I'm going to try that after a couple more flights as it is. Maybe after a no wind trial as I was flying in about a 15 mph breeze previously. Otherwise I supose it will become a DC3 or Islander.

Why I don't bother looking for any of these things at WalMarts anymore. Their hit and miss stocking doesn't thrill me much.

Wal-mart has a Storm Launcher

Well they pretty much own the whole country as of now, so I guess it doesn't surprise me that they now have the ability to control the weather and launch storms.

Oh!

okay, I know that was poor
