My foamies arrived!

I'm a new guy to flying foam airplanes but I'm probably a lot older than a lot of you reading this (64 years = slow eye hand coordination).

I stumbled on a foam builder and flyer that seemed to have a lot of experience and loved the experience of flying foamies. I purchased a slofly 28" and a yak 55 from him a few weeks ago and wanted to give him high marks on his kits. He is known to some as "tallflyer" and others as "the big dog".

He is a wealth of knowledge and can be found at www.sdparkflyers.com.
I've found that if you purchase a simple tried and tested foamie to learn the basics on, you'll stick with flying and build your skills. His planes are simple and easy to build and fly well.

Regards to all,

Welcome guys. And you would be surprised at the number of oldtimers here. I'm a spritely 50 and considered a youngster by many.
