$30 RC Plane

Aero AceI flew mine this weekend and had more fun than I thought possible given that this foam plane cost $30 at TRU.  The Aero Ace has about an 8 inch wingspan and two electric engines protected by the wings.  The rest is coffee-cup foam that bounces nicely and can be repaired with Scotch tape.

Now it’s sold out everywhere so you will have to wait until January. Worth it.
