I'm done with foam ...

It was great. I will always remember my first plane, a big white Super Cub made from recycled meat trays. I learned to fly her good, and when I failed to land properly she bounced. I modded her motor, her wing, and her electronics. I made her stupid fast and flew it like a warbird. Rolling and looping but, when I made that last mistake - she didn't survive.

So i bought a foam warbird, and another, and another. I made them faster and faster... It's been a year. Some of them survived my learning curve.

I bought a FW190 60 size 82 Saito, it sounds like an airplane.

This feels more like flying. I have 3 others on and under the build table. I have 2 stroke, 4 stroke, and gas. SO much to learn, just like starting all over again! Man this is fun. Thank Goodness I have a friend to help me ...
I went flying today... I hadn't been able to in 3 weeks. Flying both (the nitro and the foam warbirds, as I have been for the last few months) I realized today...
I'm done with foam.
