I'm wondering... will the new plane come with a lifetime membership to the Betty Ford Clinic?

Dang it!!!
I just got into planes a couple of weeks ago.
Bought an ES and a CY then ventured into the little micros, GEE BEE and the Beast3D.

Also added a couple of Warbirds to my collection from FMS.

I'm sure I will be getting this one too!
Oh well, I think I rather fly this awesome little gem then my Beast 3D.

I need a bigger garage or a counselor!

Ahhh man, you guy's are killin me. I really do not need another small foamy but this is just too hard to resist. I have been resisting so many sweet new planes for quite a while(well, two months anyway) but this thing is just way too sweet to resist.

Haha, Crack Bipe, like crack pipe

I cannot wait, a 3D bipe has been on my list of things to try to build, now I don't have to! Once again, Brad to the rescue saving me from the inevitable atrocity of my scratch building attempts.

Unusable Lipo?

A 2S battery was stuck to a little leftover glue on a foamy plane after the first use. Taking it out with a sharp knife caused the damage seen in the pictures.

Is it OK to repair the damage by covering it back up and seal it with CA or hot glue?
Or is it unusable and dangerous? Should I throw it away after one flight?

You perforated the foil. Get rid of it.

2nd Try

The epp thickness on my edge 540 is 5/8". I'm considering a Flash D and am curious if the additional weight of the Flash D is due only to the larger size or is the epp on the Flash thicker than that on the Edge 540?

I think its heavier due both thickness and size. I don't have the flash d but it looks have airfields surfaces. The easiest wat to get the sure answer is contact brad though the TH website.
