Re: Foam jets

Even some of the 1.5m foam planes Horizon sells seem ridiculous.

Re: Foam jets

More info here, not a fan of foam but it's a quick way into jets a relatively inexpensive way.

Re: Foam jets

Don't really care how good some of them fly, up close they still look like an oversized airhog and I would never want to spend a large amount of money on something that gets hangar rash from the bugs it hits in flight. Doesn't matter how careful you are with them, just handling them makes them show wear.

Re: Foam jets

I think that the offerings from Global Jet Club are pretty awesome, and a great incentive for EDF flyers to transition into turbines. Further to that, many EDF flyers are more comfortable with a foam based airframe (or at least I am), so again this makes the transition into a turbine aircraft easier.
Safety Precautions: Do not touch the rolling airscrew in order not to be hurt!

I'd like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals!
