I am not a fancy builder. Building just for fun, and something that will fly.
Just how much differance is there with the MPF from
floor pink and blue flod stuff
|Nov 29, 2012, 09:30 PM|
Stiffness similiar to Blue FFF.
But MPF has more uniform thickness and surface finish. MPF is flater and has less waves in it.
White, no printing or skin to remove.
Less stiff than Depron and not nearly as brittle.
Much stiffer than EPP.
Lots of posts in this thread discussing these items.
Bottom line: MPF is way better for building planes, and has a cost between FFF and Depron.

THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION
Help me with the little wife and the check book, for my winter build.
After 60 years. She still has the purse strings. Sad. But Yes, dear. I will only build
a few more planes.
Yes, dear, I understand that YOU CAN ONLY FLY ONE AT A TIME

If dear wife has trouble with the fun per buck of fomies, she just does not understand the alternatives. Compare the cost of say...golf, drinking, collecable cars, boats, full sized planes, hunting, fishing, heck even bowling costs more.
If you need more "help" than that it's time to either start earning some money of your own or being less honest with her. That last option just might lead to not needing to worry about what she thinks ever again. Give that some serious thought before selecting that choice.

SARG5, it's time to be creative.
Tell your beloved that it's MPF or Depron, and quote her the relative prices.
Lie to her that you'll be able to sell some of the MPF and make a profit on the whole deal.
Point out that MPF is a product manufactured in America and sold in America by Americans. It's therefore your patriotic duty to buy MPF.
You don't have to fool her (we mostly can't do that) but your pitiful attempts may amuse her enough to loosen those purse strings.
It'll give her a good story to tell her girlfriends...

MPF will soon be selling CF. And, there will be no extra shipping if we can slip it into a box of MPF for you!
The CF was delivered today. So, as soon as we can get the website set up it will be for sale.

Thank you everyone for the advise with the little wife of almost 60 years.

Fishing poles -- Have way to many
Fishing lures -- enough to start my own tackle shop
RV- have a 32 foot 5th wheel
Truck to pull the RV -- Have a 2010 Ford 350 dule.
Pull the RV all over the US to attend our Military Camping club. S.M.A.R.T. [SPECIAL MILITARY ACTIVE RETIRED AND HONORABLY DISCHARGED VETERANS CLUB]'

Back to fishing-
Give the wife the best fishing pole, best lure for the day, Best seat in the boat, bait her hook,
take her fish off for her, take her picture with the bigggest fish . I DO ALL OF THAT, BECAUSE THAT WILL KEEP ME IN A NEW BOAT.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, back to the MPF foam.
Thanks a lot everyone. You are a great group of RC flyers and builders

I live in the country, and some of the packages I recieve are "a little worse for the wear" how do you think the foam will handle rural Wisconsin?
