After zooming in on that pic, I can see the whole wing is styrofoam which will break easily when it falls to the ground. Unlike COD MW3, I don't see splinter cell has any high resell value in the past.
had a feeling u were talking about the wing but i think that's the design not styrofoam anyway check he video Link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6M56fsyV_Hc and @1UP u're not by any chance the real 1UP right?
the gamestop link says the whole specs Link:http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/games/tom-clancys-splinter-cell-blacklist-paladin-aircraft-edition/107740 it says it's made of epo foam websites r saying it's the best foam material there is plus this has a retail value of 150$ so it's not cheaply made Link:http://skyrcee.lot.my/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=1526 http://www.ehow.com/list_5938845_foam-rc-aircraft.html

If you want to see how it flies...theres a Youtube video called 'Splinter Cell Blacklist's Paladin Takes Flight' at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiSuvlDmE7s Seems decent enough. Not sure if its capable of slower speeds or gliding due to its weight...seems like it has to be flown fast.
