Tech One foamies
Has anybody had any experience with these, in particular the malibu 2 and the yak 54? I am looking into them ans I am wondering if they are any good. They seem to be sturdy and light as well as cheap, plus their pre-printed. Any thoughts?

I have the Techone EPP Angel, it flies nice at low speeds. It is the one with the full airfoil wings and fuselage, not flat-plate. The wings on mine were slightly warped when I got it, which really limits top speed. As speed builds up the wings flex, and you lose roll control well before you hit top speed. It usually only happens in a high speed dive. As long as you stick to slow flight it is a great flier though. It's very good at knife edge, hovering, and high-alpha maneuvers.

I have the piaget and the mini yak - both epp foam. Nice kits and good fliers and the printed finish looks super as well. Try one!
