NEW! West Michigan Park Flyers 3mm Depron McFoamy to be released!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Guys! I have some great news from WMPF!

WMPF is proud to announce the NEW! 3mm DEPRON version of the McFoamy!
Just like its EPP brother, it is laser cut and has all provisions for trussing pre sliced! It also has some pretty cool SFG's which channel airflow to and aileron speed brake on each wing! I stopped by WMPF last night on the way home from work and picked up three of these fresh off the laser.

...Here are a few pics of the first of three which I am building. The depron version McFoamy builds very similar to the epp version. As you can see by the pictures I have more work that needs to be done but I thought I would post a couple pics anyway just to let you guys know a little of what's to come in the future with WMPF.

What goes around comes around.

It's interesting to note that the McFoamy was originally a 3mm depron design. As the popularity of EPP indoor planes began to explode Greg at WMPF revised the drawings to produce it in EPP. I'm anxious to get one of the 3mm kits myself as I remember how well the depron versions flew.

Great job on the build jdracing3. I'm looking forward to seeing Jase turn it loose at the next indoor session. I also excited to see how he does at the freestyle contest at Efest.

Hi all,

Today Jase had the chance to take the 3mm version of the McFoamy out to the gym. We were both very impressed with its flying characteristics. It has great potential with a few changes and the use of the (new mill) at WMPF to be a very capable F3P competition plane! Right now it's almost like having the best of both worlds (3-D AND F3P) all in one plane. On the second one that I am building I will be holding off on the SFG's and brake installation till after we fly it to get an idea as to how well it will 3-D without them. Right now I think the brakes tend to keep it a little too docile for Jase's flying style. So, with this plane, I'm thinking you will have the option of installing the brakes if you want a slower rolling 3mm McFoamy, or leaving them off for a quicker more aggressive fell to the plane.
...I'll let Jase give you his thoughts on that along with the set-up we are using. Till then, watch the video and observe the VERY docile behavior of the the NEW! 3mm McFoamy from West Michigan Park Flyers!

Hey Guys!,
The new McFoamy Depron is a great airplane. Like what my Dad said, with the brakes and sfg's, it slows down the roll rate a little and is great for precision. We have not flown one without the sfg's and brakes yet, but we infer that the roll rate will be quicker and will be a more of a 3D flyer. I can't say enough about how well it flies, on the first flight, I didn't put one click of trim in at all. Also, in knife edge, it has no coupling what so ever! It hovers, and harriers very, very stable, so it is a great airplane for slow 3D also. One thing that you guys did not see in the video is a tight loop. It will do an incredible tight regular loop. But one thing that you guys did see in the video is a knife edge loop. The airplane will do an incredible knife edge loop. No coupling helps that out a lot. Also, as some of you might have saw the rolling circle early in the video. It does a great rolling circle also. The airplane is just amazing!! Some of you were also asking about the setup, so here it is:

Motor: Turnigy 2204-14T
Servos: JR S185's all around
TX: Futaba 12Z (Futaba Fasst 2.4)
You guys will definitely love this airplane once it comes out. Also, I look forward to seeing some of you Friday!
