For the princely sum of $60 you can build a very inexpensive solar powered RC airplane. The construction uses what looks like styrofoam for the wings, some solar cells (not whole panels) hot-glued to the wing surface, a pair of low power motors to fly the plane, and so on. Hot glue is used all over the place as an inexpensive way to hold things together.
