Get off the Crack and into REHAB, DWFoamies EPP Fusion!
2 Attachment(s)
Our team at DW Skunkworks wants to get you into a REHAB, the next generation of EPP foamies. Last year we introduced our Fusion line of foamies, combining an EPP nose with a Depron Airframe. We have taken it a step further, the entire airframe of the REHAB is now constructed of EPP and we’ve added Depron Control surfaces. The unique EPP construction protects the Depron from hard landings and dumb-thumbs while still allowing for precise flight. This style of construction lends to larger foam airframes without having to rely on airfoils or full body fuselages to gain stiffness.
The REHAB is designed to be a throw around beater foamie for small spaces. The wing spans 35” and comes in under 13 ounces. Our testing was done with 600 & 800mAh Lipoly batteries and a 9x4.7 SF prop. The construction makes for a stiff airframe which allows for a large flight window. Hard snaps, fast rollers and even a stiff breeze will not slow it down. This size airframe also makes a great foamie for flying in those crowed indoor gyms.

Check out our official DW crash pilot flying the REHAB with a 15mph wind blowing across the runway!

I just saw Mike's team doing some testing on this bad boy today at our club.
After seeing this I got my pre-order in for Santa to deliver.

[QUOTE] The wing spans 31” and comes in under 10 ounces.

The Twisted Hobbys Crack Yak Lite is bigger (32" wing span) and comes in at only around 6 ounces...
