Are there any molded EPP wings out there???

I have had lots of fun with my Wild Wing but it is starting to look pretty ragged now. I bought a Combat Wing XE2 as a replacement/upgrade and was very disappointed considering I paid 3 times the price for less kit and a poor flying airplane. So my question is, are there any molded 1 piece epp wings out there?

Are you looking for something that has all the bays cut out for you?
The ww is a fun wing but read in this thread for many alternatives.

Cutting the bays is no problem, but a hotwired piece of foam with bent wing surfaces and one floppy spar isnt my game.

Not a molded wing but based on the cut down wild wing made for combat. Looks like a very good value and outstanding performance. My friend and I ordered a couple, can hardly wait.

Maybe you could post some pictures of you old wing.

Many times it is not the wing but the builder.

Have a loot at the ritewing threads or the ohio combat threads may a very good wing has been build from what you discribed.

Molded epp is not all that it is no stronger and looks the same when covered..

Windrider is a good Molded EPP Wing, I've had several.
I also still have some new WildWings for sale.

The molded OML is much higher quality than a cut surface (from my experience). I just don't want to have to deal with simple problems like bad cuts from a loose hotwire, and it is noticeably stiffer with or without covering.

Thanks for the suggestion of windrider products from HK. The Beevolution looks like one of the best designs I have seen thus far for a speed wing, and it comes with everything you need to build it (minus electronics).

The MultiPlex XENO is "supposed" to be released this month.
TowerHobbies lists it as "Mid July" (which is today).

It's a highly anticipated, large (50-inch) molded elapor wing.
Has some unique features.
Sweeping molded wing tips eliminate taped on winglets.
Looks pretty sweet. There is video out there if you google it, but no hands-on reviews yet.

Elapor is not EPP...

Windrider has a very good rep for moulded Epp planes, If my FB's Windrider Fox is anything to go bye, the wings should be worth investigating...
