I'm going to hazard a guess and say it was probably the all foam .15 sized P-51 stunter from the early mid 60's. IIRC it had one of the reed valve rear intake engines. Now that i think about it it may have been a Sterling ready to fly ship. Anyone recall that one?

The best flying Cox was the FW-190 that came with an engine as I remember. It was a set of formed sheet foam wings that wrapped around a spar. It used a balsa profile body. It was very light and flew great as long as you did not do wingovers indoors cross wise to the rafters! Look at the bottom of page 66 of the April 1985 Model Aviation.

Cox Spook.. hands down! In my experiences the one and ..only... Cox ARF that actually flew like a diy model.
Fragile though.

I have a Spook, in very good condition, but will never fly it due to its age. It does look quite fragile (also like it wouls fly really well).

It is not a foamy, though.

The foamies I remember were the Me-109, the Chipmunk, and the Crusader (there were two versions of the Crusader-one with swept wings and one with a straight wing).

I think there may have been one or two more, but after I was out of the hobby for a while.

I think that there was only a single wing for all of them

TTBOMK, the Chipmunk and the ME-109 shared the same wing.
