So this foam is just as durable as FFF Dow foam but white with better finish?

Some folks (well, most folks who've used it) say more durable than fff.

Significantly more durable than Depron, although not as stiff. The 3D guys with thin profile planes will likely stay with Depron for the stiffness.

Ok

My club uses fff for foamies

I'll definitely refer them to this if it's more durable

Guys: The FliteTest vid has prompted a lot of inquiries from overseas foamie builders, and I'm really bummed to have to say we haven't been able to find an economical way to ship beyond US and Canada. The big problem is that our current size box which is just under the domestic "dimensional weight penalty" size is a fair amount larger than the international "dimensional weight penalty" size. I'm tinkering with the dimensions to see if we could adapt the current box to ship at actual weights. If any of you guys have any experience with intl. dimensional weights, I'd love the help. It might be best to pm me to avoid clogging up the thread, though.

Sad that our Yerpian bros must do without, but they have Depron to fall back upon [cough]. For me, Depron is "only when vital" material, such as doing a 2mm ultralight 3D plane. Even then, I would use MPF if available in that size and stiffen it with leading edge carbon strips and Kevlar threading.
