foam is KING!!

Well I was wrong. Foam has taken over electric flight...First it was just Profiles...then small Delta Wings...now its everything on every column in Electric forums... Oh well if the chinese can make foam warbirds with retracts and sell it over here for $200+ bucks, we will never see anything else anymore. My Hyperion Mustang will soon be a collectors item!.

Please no lectures about how great these pieces of Cr-p are and how they HELP people get into RC....The real point is WE BUY this junk and then write threads about how to swap-out everything that was included. Its foam and its cheap and we overpay for it! Whats next Helium filled mylar Warbirds?

END OF RANT.

What is your point exactly? Just ranting about foam? Why the hate?

helium filled mylar birds might be a good idea! j/k - im sure balsa planes arent going anywhere, people convert them to electric every day, try not to stress so much.

Funny, seems like you're trying to slam foamies but in fact are promoting them. Either way, foam does rule. Easy to make, easy to buy, easy to repair. In the end, easy wins.

If you don;t like foam stop buying it and stick to other kit.

end of rant.

hilarious

Lol it should be, especially since any of the 1400mm mustangs from FMS look better than the Hyperion one. And what's up with that lame 2 bladed prop?
Is this a scale warbird or a scale toy?

I for one welcome our Chinese foam overlords!

He is right. Foam does rule! I had a whole garage of tooth pick birds that I have now thrown out.
