foam pitcheron or TWF kit?
I have convertedd two foam throwies into pitcherons in the past,
- 60cm mini discus http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1532937
- 80cm arcus airy http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1573296
Difference between pitcheron and TWF?
to my understanding, both rotate the entire wing halves for control surfaces, but TWFs do have additional control surface at tail?
Now I would like to get something a little bigger. As I am not a good pilot with these things, I would like to stick with foam for the time being. So I was wondering if there are any kits available for foam pitcherons or TWFs?

TWF's, or Twisty Wing Fliers, encompass both Pitcheron and Wingeron planes. Pitcheron use wings for roll and elevator control, while wingeron planes only use the wings for roll and have a separate elevator. As far as foamy kits, search for the Volara 2 here on the slope forum.

So it seems this boils down to the volara2? I have been following the volara2 buuild thread for quite some time.
I will need some more air time before I feel I am ready for such a real plane.

The Volara flies really nice. I've seen a couple and they are beautiful. I am not a wing/pitch-eron expert by any means, never owned one, but have been fortunate to be friends with Target and Droydx, both of whom have (and have had) some pretty sweet machines. So, relative to a number of other similar machines, the Volara is a nice performer, convenient size, and durable. Unless you were planning to scratchbuild, I think it would be a good choice.
