But I doubt I'll be buying any more thin foam-skinned airframes at the kind of prices they're running. I'll be going with either reasonably-priced solid foam, glass, or wood airframes for a while. I love the detailed looks and smooth flight characteristics of the Alfas, but the sheet foam just doesn't repair very well. With any luck I've gotten over having pushrods come off in flight and hitting trees, soccer goals, and the occasional basketball court anyway lol. Hope so cause I'm not anteing up to stay in the $200 foamie club again anytime soon.
