this thing just makes me not want any foam airplanes period!
No no no no no!!! Foamies are EXCELLENT, but this FlatOut garbage is bad enough that it shouldn't even be called a 'foamy'.
I had an RC Bipe awhile back. I fought/struggled with it for awhile, but never even got it off the ground. A few weeks ago I was cleaning out the garage and I had the most fun with it that it could ever provide: I tore it to pieces and stuffed it into a trash bag. I tried to salvage some of the CF, but it was mostly covered in CA and would be very hard to use with anything else.
A GOOD foamy is really an excellent plane to have. I would say that you should try... pretty much anything else on the market. ANYTHING would be better than these stupid CrapOuts
