What, a new "start-up" company to produce these? And these custom made items are "too expensive" at this time?

If this is all true, I am sure you can find a way to reduce costs, I am sure somebody out there has ideas to share about molding the foam into those 3D shapes.

You could create a fiberglass shell over solid foam then pour acetone in it to remove the foam. Some say that the thin shell is lighter than a built-up balsa structure for a fuselage, so it has promise.

You might mold the solid foam parts in a mold using expanding foam, like "Great Stuff" for the above process. I haven't done this, but I have seen it done by those in prototype shops for show-car parts.

Otto, your creations were featured on a UK TV show last night. "The Gadget Show." However, there was no mention of your name.

Flygirl crashed. It could be because "the pilot" kept changing transmitters while flying

It won't let me access from the US. It wasn't my Flygirl. Mine has become Ms Emerson.

I think the US gets restricted because we got discovered that we snoop on everything. I am sure every other country does too, but we got caught. We have stupid morons running our government. Forget smoothness, forget proper constitution compliance, we got morons.

Sorry, guys ... didn't know the link has geographical restrictions. I found another link on YouTube but it may have the same restriction. There's this trend here of streaming TV channels online so people can watch it on the go anytime.

Those of you savvy enough know what to do to make the video host think you're in the UK, too. I wish I am so I can tell you how. In a nutshell, the show started by saying anybody can now be a superhero for just a few bucks, and came up with a full-sized Flyguy and Flygirl. The TV show's host and hostess go to a field and "fly" it. The host landed his safely, the hostess crashed hers. The thing that caught my attention were the scene transitions where the woman's transmitter kept changing between a DX8 and DX18

2RK,

No good in Australia with the YouTube link: 'The uploader has not made this video available in your country.' Don't worry about it. Hopefully the guys in North America have more luck though.

3D Superman at Comic-con. I flew over the water and never buzzed the Convention Center.
