I've been experimenting with this foam for a while. I use the 1 in. thick stuff. It has a plastic film on both sides to give it some rigidity, so needs little bracing.
I built this Turkey Vulture at 4 ft. wingspan and is so light it makes an excellent glider. Holds altitude at about a 1/4 throttle.
Also have been flying a Fokker DRI made for 3D flying. Oversize ails and stab/elev. It's 38 in. wingspan and weighs 1 lb. 2 oz. I'll put a pic of it as soon as I get a chance.
Takes paint with no problems as long as it's for foam.Testors etc.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.

Re: Construction Foam
Hey, that's cool!
Where do you get this foam from? Is it available from home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowes?? If so, which one??
