Hey guys,

I have spent a few months looking for airplanes that use 1/2in Owens Corning Pink foam from Home Depot and Lows $9 for a 4 Foot by 8 Foot.
I have a few that i want to share for people that want to use this inexpensive and easy to use building meterial.

These are the airplanes that were built specificly for 1/2in foam as the primary meterial.

I am currently working several foamies whose primary build material is 9mm epp and seeing how they will fly with 1/2in foam.

I am at the point of installing electronics. So i will get back to you guys in no more than a month with the post-maidan performance.

Working With Owens Corning Pink Foam
Working with Ownes Corning Pink Foam is very similar to that of Depron or Fan Fold. The major diference i noticed is the foam melts very easy when using power tools i.e dremels to shape or carve it. I do not recomend using power tools on this stuff. Also you need a Brand New razor blade oiled inbetween uses and changed alot to cut it. Even a slightly dull blade that would be fine for depron will cause the blade to drag instead of cut and cause a bad edge. If you are cutting and it feals like the blade is getting hung up then imediatly stop and get a fresh blade.


More to come soon.

Hello, Welcome to my blog everyone!
I thought id start out with my non rc related "stuff". Juat because its cool and its aviation.
The Picture of the Cessna is from a local airport here so are the P-51 and
B-25.
The pictures of the Helis and F-18 are from Camp Ripley of the Minnesota National Guard. Dont ask why the F-18 is there. But it is in the Aggressor Paint, so you tell me?
Any way here you go hope you enjoy it! More to come soon.
