    Another of the Art Applewhite early designs was a 3" Cardstock printed Flying Saucer.
    Gets about twice the altitude of the original 3" Quest RTF "LPB" flying Saucer on the same motor. Still we're only talking about maybe 25feet LOL!!!
    but a Fun build from a flat piece of cardstock.

    I won mine in an EMRR contest a few years back. Not terribly durable, but if you fly on a small field with a soft landing area, you might be okay. Mine broke on the first landing.
