Will do as I am looking to get away from non-USA hobby suppliers. Their prices are good also and the shipping is tolerable.

I've noticed that 3m Blue tape adhesive reacts to $Tree foamboard. Anywhere I have placed it on the foam the tape leaves a mark when removed. Also, I forgot Welders glue will eat some foams. Made a very nice Welders glue elevon hinge then watched as it ate the foam. Live and learn, at least remember not to do dumb things, I guess. Anyway, the hinge joint is a little ugly but appears strong and should be flyable.

By the way, thanks for your help.

I know I have drifted off of Balsa or Carbon's original intent of this thread by starting to get into some of the hows, whats, and who to get it from. I picked up on my first thread by Balsa or Carbon with this thread, and have since followed several of his threads that he had started since this one. To me Balsa or Carbon has opened the door to scratch building aircraft that to put it simply is economical to build, and just down right fun to fly.

With that said, I just want to say good job Balsa or Carbon for making an aircrafts that is so simple, but yet so much fun.

Hey Swimmer, just remember as long as life, limb, or property isn't in danger that mistakes are nothing more than a learning experience.

Thanks , eboggs59 ! By any chance have you built a SUPER EASY ? It's lots of fun doing vertical take-offs with one of those !

I haven't built the Super Easy yet, but it is on my list to build. The Super Easy is a prime example of what I was talking about in keeping the R/C flying economical and fun. It is basically patterned after a paper air plane like we all made as kids.
