Where are all the giant PNP EDF Jets?? FMS should step up.

After seeing and being very impressed with the P51 1700mm from FMS I'm wondering why we don't have any really large foamy edf jets? 90mm is so small and to get anything else larger that isn't scratch built you have to go to composite. I know personally I would LOVE a massive scale foam A-10 or F-18 etc etc. And please don't tell me that the foam wouldn't be strong enough because we all know that isn't the case anymore.

I'm with you.. However edfs are a much smaller market and the mold for a large jet would be upwards of 100k just for the mold for the manufacturing..
Combine that with insane shipping costs and don't forget anyone who knows its a "foam" plane will whine, moan, and burn the dealer at the stake if it cost more than 200.00 even though the profit margin is extremely low and even if the plane has better components and flies out of the box..

Pretty much sums it up.. Next..

LOL you are probably completely right. It's just too bad as these smaller sizes are boring me to tears now.

Well I spent part of the day scoping out the jets at JePe-- damn nice F-18-

http://www.jepejets.com/jepesite/FastFoam/F-18/F-18.htm

Length:--- 167cm (nose to elevator ends) 65.74"
Wingspan: --113cm (inlusive sidewinder fairings) 44.48"
This no Nitro-planes or other smallish plane-- But , you have to build it. To many people just can't/ wont' build. $ 123.00 + 46.00 shipping is good. Great for twin 70's. It can be made ot handle a single 90 . 8s to 12s. Your choice.

They do have others, You just have to see whats in stock-- http://www.jepejets.com/jepeshop/91-...m-version-jets
