Snowfly Gliders For Sale
I have put together everything needed to run a foamy business, but I don't have the time and energy to run it.
I would love to see these models being flown and enjoyed so If anyone has ever thought about doing this here is a great opportunity.
I have put a large amount of time and money into this. All that is needed now is for someone to actually produce the models.
* 4 axis CNC hot wire foam cutter
* A mobile work bench on castors with a drop saw, sliding drop saw, drill press & metal bender
* Specific tools / jigs made for specific models
And in large quantities:
* Carbon rods, tubes and bars
* Spar joiners
* Tapered balsa ailerons
* Various fins and stabilizers laser cut from ply and coreflute
* Control rods, control horns, clevises etc.
* Switch jacks
* Lost model alarms
* Coloured packing tape
* Solar film colours
* Bi directional tape
* Micro ballons
* Foam cutting and laser cutting files for 18 models including
- Light wind
I'm sure there is loads I have forgotten to mention, but you get the idea.
I would also include my suppliers and give ongoing support including assistance in the production of new models.
I have spent well over $10,000 on setting this up.
I am not looking to make a profit.
I am not looking to charge for the countless hours I have spent on this.
I am not looking to charge for my intellectual property.
I just want to sell it for a fair price to someone who will enjoy selling foamy kits so they can be enjoyed.
Feel free to PM me if you want to know more.

It might be useful for prospective buyers to see the types of models you have / planned to produce.
Just a thought, Steve

Good idea Steve.
Here is a little info on the models.
The Orbit is a wing with minimal sweep build just for DS. It is very fast and strong.
The Orbit 48 and Orbit 80 have been tested with great results. They are a very fast stable wing and retain a lot of speed through the loop. The Orbit 80 is currently the 2nd fastest foamy in Australia beating the JW60.
The Pitbull is a plank with a fuse, this model has been flown, but not yet tested in the DS loop. The Pitbull uses the same airfoil as the Orbit, but has a higher aspect ratio. It is a nice flyer and should perform well DSing.
The Hulk is a 60 inch DS plank designed for beginners, it is big and strong hence the name. It has a low aspect ratio and thick airfoil making it very robust for all those inevitable crashes.
The violet crumble is a 60 plane designed for DS it should have no trouble achieving a foam plane world record as all the foam planes with current speeds were designed for the front side.
Light wind model:
The Sea Eagle is a forward swept plank with a fuse that looks like a sea eagle funnily enough. It performs well in light wind and looks great in the air.
The FPV wing is a 80 inch monster with a low aspect ratio and thick specially designed PW airfoil. It is designed for maximum efficiency while carrying heavy loads.
Any questions, just ask.
