Got some foam presentation board, this isn't dollar tree it's got a thin layer of plastic glued to it. Very sturdy for what it is. May try using it for the bat I want to build for slow night flying, though it'll obviously be heavier than a model plane foam bat.

Couple pages back someone had an led strip with a bouncing light knight rider kitt style. Have an idea for another plane that would work well on, anyone know where to get it?

Because I am working hard these days on a coax singe copter, I can't help but imagine when I look at that Geobat, that replacing this classic motor with a coax one could change this Geobat into a nice Vtol

They will hover in a light breeze really well......... this is when it is nice to have rudders so you can stay pointed into the wind without having to yank and bank.

I agree on the rudders, it makes it easier to do more with it......if built to specs a light wind is all it takes to hover......I went a little heavy with extra foam,cf,lights, etc. so I need a little extra wind to really play with it. But it still flys great as it is, no disappointment or regrets.

I finally got my SpiderBat version to take off and land from Water after a few mods.
