Here are a couple pics of Ray and I hovering a 23" Sbach made of Dollarama Foam Board, it only weighed 2.4 oz and is incredibly light for the size, a real treat to fly. This one is milled but you can easily make your own without milling, it should only weigh 6 or 7 grams more if you're using the right components. The only draw back is it's fragility, it doesn't take too much abuse.

I'm on the left and Ray on the right

Re: Blue Foamie

Well, test flight day is now over.... Did it fly???? Certainly, even at the AUW of 3.5oz... Changed ESC to a 6 amp one cause the 10 amp croked, then, after the first test, changed the lipo position to back of the wing, at the leading edge of the aleron... and, put a 7/3 prop on it.... Jonathon flew it for it's first flight and put it through it's paces pretty good, loops, spins, side slips, hover, rolls etc.... At first he called it a Pylon racer but with the change of props, it was a little quieter...
Hey all, this is the BEST indoor I've found yet, thanks to Gaston..... Now, get your 20"ers from him..... FAST....
Thanks to all for a very successful day... All 20 flyers!!

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Art

I have to admit, with all that paint, it does look good and flying ok is an added bonus, good job Art. I'm glad to see that you had a good time with it.
You certainly had a good number of people, as many as we had at our gym, I have to give you guys credit to be able to manage such a large group in a smaller area.
Thanks for the update

Hi Art

I might be wrong but it looks like Angus in the middle picture.

Re: Blue Foamie

Re middle pic...... No, not Angus, But Jimmy Prowse of the London Auto Modifiers hot rod club, or at least it used to be LAM, it's still a HR club but I think now it's called London Hot Rod Club......
Jimmy is an old time friend, back in the days when I was HR crazy, and never built one..
Yes, it was a little crowded, but with the time periods for all types, they all got in a good amount of flying.. You should have seen the Vapors flying, all 15 of them at one time, the only one I could tell was mine, different color wing.... Ya needs a beacon on all of em to tell you where yers is..
Hope we can draw this many again for our February event...
