Hey Mike, you were correct, it is pretty expensive to get the foam wings out of the states. $24 for the wing, and $23 to ship it! So now for plan B.

Re: Where can you order custom foam wings?

Enter plan B here: ___________ You might consider a Formosa II if you want electric in that size range. The F-II is quite a bit bigger than the original Formosa. You'll want 350-400 watts of brushless power on a 2100 mAh pack to make it shine. Pretty much same power plants as you've seen in my elecs that are my standard of "lotsa" power.
The F-II is actually about the same size as the Kobra.


Splash some flashy paint on it to hide the boring white foam and and make it look totally different. I think you'll be onto something seemingly new and exciting, yet flight will be familiar and comfortable like an old pair of well worn shoes.

Just one of many examples of nicely done F-II color schemes below. To give an idea of the size - in the second picture, the plane on the left is a FormosaII and the one on the right is a 30 sized glow powered pattern plane. About the same as the Kobra

The slope glider version of the F-II (no power plant included) will run you about 60 bucks.
We could try and probably get one to you by this coming weekend if you are keen ..... but then, it might distract you from finally finishing off that Kougar - which I know you are really going to enjoy.
