hackaday reader dan really made my day by sending us a great hack that shows you how to turn a microsizer/bitchar-g/zipzap micro r/c car into a 2 channel airplane for a total cost of $35.
those cars cost about $10, are incredibly tiny, and you can find them everywhere. that’s definitely worth considering next time you want some sort of r/c functionality in your own hack.
