Flite Test Mini Sportster "Maker Foam" Electric Airplane Kit (584mm)
Very fun plane to build and fly. My kit included landing gear wire which wasn't in the description. I used the F pack and the 850 mAh battery add-ons. I used some toothpicks to reinforce the foam between elevator halves. My build came out a bit nose heavy but with the battery slid back a little past the wing leading edge it's not hard to get CG right. Fly's good in light gusty wind at about half throttle for 7 min or so.
