Like your project. In fact I am working on a very similar project, although mine is going to be a hybrid between the predator B and C, it is a V tail aircraft.
It is my first ever RC build. Yep I am a Noob and somehow going for the EasyStar…"
"I literally have nothing yet. Though I have been considering some kind of 6 channel perhaps a Futaba or Spektrum Tx. I don't want to drop to much but something that will last and give me what I need."
"It would actually be pretty reasonable... The foam is inexpensive, and the motor and receiver are not too bad either. Do you have a transmitter yet?

Yes, we are getting ready to launch a website (buildafoamie.com) where we will be selling the plans to build this predator model as well as several other planes.
We have no plans to sell actual foam kits/parts, at least not at the moment.…"

The plane flew very well, and is really stable. We may have to scale it up a bit in order to add autopilot etc.. A low transmitter batter lead to the crash near the end of…"
UPDATE: The plans are now available here: http://www.buildafoamie.com/products.htmlWe're working on a UAV platform. You can see our progress here.We'd love any feedback anyone has.. This is just a prototype, but we'd like to eventually add a camera, auto pilot, and GPS.See More
