I know, that is what makes it so much fun. Who cares if someone else shears the wing off your brand new white foamie. Thanks God for hot glue. My last blue one had an extra 10 sticks of glue on it before I traded it in on the white one.
It is nice to see so much creativity. Keep building them.

While on the topic of white foam. I am finding it more forgiving when crashing and the toilet paper tube engine mount is great for reducing damage to the front end. My son Daniel went full bore into the floor from the ceiling, broke the glue joint holding the wood motor mount and drove the motor into the toilet paper tube. No damage to the plane. He just pulled the motor out and reglued the wooden mount.

I saw that earlier today, he's doing well, it's nice to see young people getting into it and enjoy themselves so much, he had a smile on his face all afternoon, even while you were gone

Re: Blue Foamie

I maiden my fancyfoam yak 55m today. Boy these indoor foamies are slow and fun. I hadnt had a chance to fly in over 3 weeks, but with these small things, i can fly anywhere. I may be attending an indoor event next week, so i will finally see what you guys are raving about, flying with zero wind.

Hi

Very nice flying, it shows that you've been practicing, as I said at the beginning of this thread, the flue foam is only a stepping stone to a more expensive but much better model, congratulations.
I'm not at your level and might never be but I'm having a great time trying.
Thanks for sharing this video with us, by the way, I like the music also.

Re: Blue Foamie

I much prefer flying with blue foam because there's no stress when flying with it costing only $5. Buy since moving I gave up my hotwire so I'm stuck with buying planes.

Why do you need a hotwire with blue foam? It cuts fine with an xacto knife.
Excellent flying skills.

I don't lnow what is worse. Wind or 10 planes in the air at once. I tend to think 10 planes is more fun. It greatly improves your skills {not that your's need improving} and combat without a streamer is a blast. Like you said it is only $5 worth of foam.

You got a good point there on wind or 10 planes. Over here in B.C we dint get the 1/4 foam you guys get, so I normally get 1/2 foam and slice it into 3mm and 4.5mm thickness.
