I would recommend visiting www.spadtothebone.com as they have taken that same idea and use a plastic called coroplast instead of cardboard. I myself have a PBF made of this stuff and it is a great way to make a cheap aircraft that is durable and easy to build.

I removed some posts from this thread and edited another. I don't like to do that but it had strayed way off topic. (And got a little heated.)

I apologize to those that had post(s) removed or edited. Most of the comments were offered with good intent.

Now back to the RC fun.
