The whole article was presented in a center fold out position with common photos and did justice to a very successful project by Gaston,that has added a new dimension and impetus to indoor flying in Canada.
Thanks for the effort Keith.
Thanks to Kevin and Craig for a very well done article, I certainly couldn't do better myself, nice work guys. I'm hoping this will attract more people to fly indoors, no matter what they fly as long as they enjoy themselves, there are many models and manufacturers out there.
Thank you.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Real Gambler

Nice flying, I noticed your vertical landing, awesome. There seems to be lots of nice colors, how about a pic of the plane and yourself. It's clearly visible that you're having a blast. Thanks for the video and the compliments.

Re: Blue Foamie

You don't want a close up picture of my plane. My friends are putting their transmitter on the ground when I fly it, to make sure nobody think that hey are flying THAT plane... : )

There's definitively LOTS of "nice?" colors!!! Amazing what you can do when there's a sale at Michael's, and you have a paint gun. (The big one, for painting car!). You're spending hours making sure we have the lightest Blue Foamie possible, and sure enough, I've likely added about 10gr of paint on it! : ) Still fly soooooo nice.

Hi Real Gambler
That's funny, about putting down their transmitters..I had a glimpse of it in the video, it didn't look that bad., as long as you're having a good time, that's what counts

Re: Blue Foamie

The Germans have developed a special adhesive for foam (Depron etc.). Is incredibly good. If you want more information: bc.herbiehoss@yahoo.ca

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Herbiehoss, and all you other foamie builders, I discovered a new adhesive last year at our Swap shop, called Foam to Foam glue... It's a product of Ontario glues, Toronto.
I bought a bottle and have used it extensively on my foam building... Great stuff, no smell, and very strong..
It's something like a contact cement and CA mixed... Dry times are quick, while full curing is within an hour.. Actually, we tried this out on our Vapor coverings as these seem to POP off with the slightest bump and all you do is wipe a bead on the area, smooth it out with your finger, and press the covering back on... Holds like an Elephant sitting on a grape!!!
Sounds like the Beli-Cell is another great one and must get me a tube of that...
FYI....

Looking forward to meeting you all, soon.

Hi Art
Thanks for your appreciation, we certainly had a great and memorable day at your gym, we're hoping to do that again next year.
