We sold out of all the Rehabs that Mike brought to the AMA show by Sat just after noon. So more feed back should start coming in.

Liar liar, wheel pants on fire
Some might have seen this at the AMA show. I was surprised at how many people commented on them but won't be surprised to see more hot-rod pants on DW foamies in the near future.

And here's that copy of a Yak 54 that I milled out a lotta foam , put the smallish motor on it and kept it to 9 oz AUW flying at the AMA show on a dying battery . When Mike saw this he laughed and showed me some light weight stuff he's working on ... He knows lighter is better

But why when there's these fine examples of light weight ones ...
Watching D W Foamies planes fly at the show was always entertaining.

maiden my 48" juka on Saturday.it instantly went to the top of the list of my foamies.this plane is simply awesome.set it up with an omega 72,40a cc esc,and nano-tech 1600 battery.its auw came in just under 25.5 oz.it hovers at 1/2 throttle.
instead of using blenderm tape,i hinged all surfaces.when I first set it up it had almost 90* throw on the ailerons.
this is my 6th dw plane .thanks to Mike for designing such great planes.
