Lot of comments about the price, but I found it for just over $4 a bottle at RC Foam:

Considering the last bottle of 2oz foam safe CA I bought at my LHS was $19, getting 4 bottles of Foam Tac shipped to me for $25.55 seems like a deal to me...Pete M

Anyways, that's my $0.02.
They will have it....

All you guys have to do is ask the hobby shop to carry it and tell Eric to call them....

Here's a couple more I have done recently......the 3D plane is a loose scratch copy of the Charger CR-1. It's 6mm depron, my own design motor mount of 9mm depron and lite ply. I have yet to maiden this one but it looks promising .

The other plane is a kid's throw glider from Toys R us modded into an RC model It has flown a few times and does very well, even in windy conditions.
Both were built with Foam Tac, 3N1 and Quick Grip.

This is what the throw glider started off as:

Thanks Pete,I was thinking of putting something under the first few inches of the fuse on the Whitly for the not so perfect landings.

OK I'm very impressed, that looks amazing and your are entered,
I love WW2 English warplanes, for some reason they had class and appeal to me, my all time favorite is the Spitfire.

Hey Ray, Very nice and creative, I really like the recycled foam glider from the toy store looks fast, Your Depron 3D plane is also nice and more my speed although I like anything that flys, I love 3D planes the most, and yours is awesome, I am the process of building a big brother for my mini Tac-Yak, I think I'll call it the "Yac-EE" should be finished tomorrow and I have to wait for hurricaine Sandy to leave before I can test fly it. I will post pictures tomorrow of a bunch of recently built planes, I love Foam-Tac. BTW you are entered in the Foam-Tac contest Good Luck.

Hey Petey,
I love it you do such nice work and so fast, but what happened to Polaris # 1 thru 31? LOL... How long does it take you to build one of these? 10-20 minutes?
Really though you do beautiful work, you are the best, and I love your video's.

Hey Rich,
Welcome to BCSF glad to have you as a member, between you and I they are adding a lot of "Class" to the club....YUK, YUK.
I think you are going to really enjoy this club, BCSF is a great bunch of guys especially people like Carlos, Sofaman, Petey, Mike, Oh, just everybody is awesome. They know how to have fun and they put on some great events, and I like that there are no real politics to get in the way, it's about friendship and good times and I love it. So welcome aboard and look forward to meeting you in person. Isn't Petey amazing, very prolific builder and fast, I think I'll call him, "Pop em' Out Petey" He built a couple of planes for me and he is very good at it I am sure it won't be to long before you see his stuff up close and personal.
