If I could be half as good as yourself, I would be happy...

Re: Blue Foamie

I noticed most of the vendors have discontinued their F3P models. I'm guessing that the guys that are currently into this are probably making their own? Or are their some specialist type vendors out there for this genre?

I think it will be a challenge to make one from scratch... especially that is light enough with all the other characteristics, etc.

Basically, what I'm saying is flying is fun and a challenge for sure, but there's also the building side that we can all have some fun with .

Now I know that Bryan can fly them well I may just try my hand at designing one - IF you're willing to be a beta tester for me Bryan?

Cheers,
J

I just meant the 'typical' retail giants like e-flite, greatplanes, etc. I think I did a search for 'F3P' on them and any they had were discontinued.

I'll check out fancyfoam.

Thanks,
J

Here are some pics of the 27" Axis and weighs 4.05oz (116 grams) we'll be testing it tomorrow. Ray was here all day working on a file for it and we made 4 of them.

Re: Blue Foamie

Put some air brakes on my S-Bach, works great
Hey Gaston, you guys fly indoor on Sunday, let me know I'm going to see if I can get a Plane ride to the Sudbury air port.

It was a Great day for out door yesterday, we did some flying at the field and did some at the pond.

I'll phone you if I find a ride.
