yeah i agree with that cause i wouldn't be able to sell anything by just posting it on that website. when i have a plane design i will probably make a thread on RCG about it.

RCG,RCU,FG,Youtube, anything else you can think of were people might see it. Try to get an ad in a magazine like Model Aviation. There are two sides to being succesfull. Having a good product, and having good advertising. once you get you first production run, send one to one of the big rc names on youtube to review (RCmodelreviews, flighttest, etc) so people see your product in a popular video. Nobody will ever buy if they don't find it first.

BTW - what kind of planes do you plan on making?

Posting more than once doesn't help your chances anyways. I already asked anixs about it.

Well. I guess you gotta start somewhere.
What will make your foamboard planes better than a twisted hobbies model or a fancyfoam model? Because if there is nothing better/different with yours than those, your planes will just be another foamboard plane. You gotta make something better, like, say, a twin engine 3d plane or a fast foamboard propjet that can also slow down and huck like a regular profile foamie.

cheap is good. Those foamy kits are usually hugely marked up and are not really worth the price.
