Hi
You can only get it at Lowe's in the US, Lowe's in Canada won't bring it in.

Re: Blue Foamie

Helno, hopefully, my wife and I are going to Port Huron today, will check out their local Lowes to see if they do have it in stock, price and size of sheets... OK?

The last time I bought some, I had to drive 13 hours return, I went to Petoski MI a few months ago, I also bought some in Buffalo and in Detroit before. Your best bet is to call the closest Lowe's in the US to make sure they have it, just Google the nearest store.
I hope this will help.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi all
Well, our trip to Port Huron yesterday was kind profitable, gas, groceries, and Olive Garden....
Went to the Lowes store there and they don't have the blue FFF but they do carry a green FFF, 1/4" thick, 48" X 50' at $39.00 a pack...
Don't know too much about this green stuff but it felt similar to the blue FFF
I guess the only way is to buy a pack and give it a try..
Anybody know of this product????

Hi Art

Re: Blue Foamie

Mornin Gaston
Any further developments on that green foam yet??
Am in the process of building a 40" sBach, for outdoor flyin... Hope to use the ST 10 on it with a 3c 1500mAh lipo..
Have it all cut out now, just waiting for a kick in the rear to start gluein together.. Our annual spring fun fly is on today, last weekend we had our Electric Only fun fly, and out of the 4 hours planned, we got 2 1/2 hours in, then the rain hit, with a vengance...
Todays weather doesn't look that much better, but it's not bad right now, so off I go...

Re: Blue Foamie

Still fly the original Yak outside myself! Sure enough, doesn't need much wind to get bullied around, but such an awesome plane! I even painted my Yak so I can spot it easily outside.... (yes, I know, funky colors!)

Until then, still waiting for a smaller wingspan indoor airplane from Gaston!

Hi Art
A friend of mine picked up a bundle of Greenguard for me last week in the US and I received it this morning. I just finished building an Sbach and took some pics, I'll post them within the an hour.

Too bad about the wind, I've been waiting for good weather for quite a while, the couple times I flew outside, when there was no wind, it was a real blast, I love it.
Your flying is awesome on that video and I like the colors, good job.
