Yes, I agree.

I've owned dozens of EPP 3D foamies, but never an EPO 3D foamy, so I contacted Zeta Science top express interest in trying one. They said that they will send me one, so eventually I should have some photos, video and opinions to share.

I am 3D newbee, but tested several crafts so far...

After starting with Easy Star (not really 3D machine )many years ago, I was later trying some helis and multirotors, but it was not so fun...
Later had some wings and my favourites were Wingwing and Phantom (still flying often), in contrary to X-5, which I couldn't fly with any fun at all...

Than HK Pitts arrived - the first more or less 3D-capable plane - this started to be really funny !!!
After that discovered Twisted Hobbys / RC Factory planes - these makes me happy at every start, already having : Crack Yak, Yak mini, Cr Pitts, Pitts mini, Beaver, 1m Edge and 1,2m Su-29, everyone different and everyone absolutely amazing !!!

Now looking for something new and must say that this Extreme 3D looks different than Twisted planes and is very, VERY promising to offer new challenges and different experiences...

I've been talking with Zeta Science on these as well. The quality and detail looks to be really good on them.

The EPO planes I've flown have a more rigid feel in the air than EPP. Less draggy and generally more precise. Especially after many flights and crashes when EPP tends to get a little more sloppy. The downside is that in severe crashes EPO can crumple. You can still repair it but not as easily as EPP which just tears. EPO is heavier as well which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. I fly outdoors and favor a little extra heft so long as the power is there and the air frame remains rigid.

When flying with strong moving, the EPP always easily bent,and you can get a good performance fly as EPO. The toughness of EPP is much better that EPP and not easily break when t will be crashed.Its outstanding toughness offers greater protection against breakage of crash and makes it durable.

Hey guys,

I received an email from Zeta Science's Sales Manager, saying that they completed their final testing today and that they will send me a kit on Monday. Stay tuned for more details as they come.......

As a novice, I can say Ive found EPP to be far less durable than EPO.
On EPP planes bigger than 800mm wingspan, the whole plane can be a floppy mess if the kit doent have enonough carbon spars in the fuse & wing. Crashing EPP crushes the nose area & will tear the wing . A well designed EPO plane seems to be far more crash resistant, for me.

This plane looks great

It has arrived!!!

Today I received my PnP version of the Zeta Extreme 3D EPO plane. I have owned dozens of EPP planes, but this is my first EPO plane. EPO is clearly stiffer than EPP, though both types of foam still benefit from intelligent placement of carbon rods/strips.

My initial thoughts are that the quality looks to be very good. The colour scheme looks great. Orientation will be easy, with the underside of the wings being green.

The motor, servos and control horns are already installed, but I will need to install the pushrods, as well as glue a few pieces together.

I started the quick build last night. Since it is a PnP version and not an ARF version, most of the work has already been done. I used the supplied glue to glue the carbon rods into the horizontal stabiliser and elevator and I glued the 2 separate halves of the horizontal stabiliser and elevator to the fuselage. In addition to this, I attached the wings to confirm they fit OK and I installed the landing gear in the plastic slot in the fuselage.
