The Balsa planes are much stronger than the foam. The hinges snaped off the Carbon z really easily, the elevator counter balance break off in the grass, servo problems right out of the box..... Now, when you slam the carbon Z into the pavement at full throttle it's very repairable. Balsa plane, you have a lot of work ahead of you.
