NEW 3DF SuperXtra 1.14m - Top Shelf Foamy

Friends..... Have I been busy here at the shop!.... I wanted to get you introduced to the newest, coolest, most advanced foamy in the world.....

Appologies for keeping you all in the dark for the last month while development has been going on.

This New Generation Foamy is a complete ground up redesign of the Extra 300LX and features some cool new Technology in it.....

There will be a limited production run of 100 kits. You will have the chance to pre-order yours (limit 2 per person) on Thursday 4/7/05. Prices are $59.95. Not for the beginer (there are cheaper airframes to crash) I'll have the full construction manual online for review later this evening.

I'll also be updating this here thread with some build pictures and specs.... I think you'll all enjoy the news to come....

That's not the actually foamy is it????? I checked the composite-arf.com website and it says those sell for about a grand. nice picture though, but is that the actual plane?

Ooops sorry just saw the "based on".. Is the kit you are producing full fuse??

The 3DF SuperXtra 1.14m was designed and manufactured by computer (CAD/CAM) for accuracy and construction ease. The level of engineering and laser cutting has been hailed by many as the highest in the industry. All parts have been precision cut on a CNC laser cutting system at the 3D Foamy Models shop. Not only are 3DF planes accurately manufactured, but they adhere to the full scale Extra 300 platform to IMAC guidelines. This makes your plane fly like the big planes do! It also makes it one of the best looking foamy’s out there, and a great trainer for aerobatics. It’s no surprise that competition IMAC pilots prefer our planes to practice competition routines.

The foam used in your kit is the best quality available. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations of this incredible material. True Depron is only available from one place in the entire world! Depron is very forgiving and easy to paint. It is also easy to repair after mishaps. The composite laminate construction of the 3DF designs makes them one of the strongest performance foamy’s in the world.

Some unique construction techniques have been introduced by 3D Foamy models. The first is the G-Force PRO™ wing. It revolutionized the flight performance of foamy’s.

All foamy's are NOT created equal..... 3D Foamy kits are the first to offer this radical new wing design! The G-Force PRO™ wing is the heart of the aircraft. It is a core layer with beautiful lightning holes.... To top it off, servo bays and even the control horn slots are all cut, ready for the cool 3D Foamy 3D control horns. (included) The beauty of the deal is the top and bottom LE wing skins. It allows for slower airspeeds on the down lines, totally eliminates high speed "hunting" (not much to start with though) and improves the tracking to the point that you WILL NOT think you are flying a "Flat" wing... The top wing cap covers the servo and lightening cutouts... The bottom wing cap makes it all symmetrical... By sanding the LE round, it creates a good separation point for good clean snaps. The caps carry back to MAC, then transition back into the hollow wing section. This creates a small vortex down the rest of the wing, allowing better aileron control, less wing rock, and a little more "lift" for slower landings. This also helps out with the glide ratio.... It looks awesome too.... the aileron servos and wires are completely hidden in the wing. No more servo leads dangling in the wind! Direct Drive rudder and elevator linkage is part of the PRO kits.... The servos are located as close as possible to the flight surface. It uses a short carbon pushrod for control... The plane flies like a 40%er, and so now the controls are setup the same too!
The second unique construction technique is the composite laminate method of the entire airframe. This includes the lightened core layer of foam, and then outer sheet layers. This weight saving; strength increasing technology allows a larger airframe at the same weight of a smaller model. Incorporated into this technology is our Hinge Core™ design. Tapes are nice, but look bad and don’t last. Hinges are the natural choice, but requires accurate placement and drilling of 26 holes in foam. For most modelers this is a chore and leaves some frustrated. We fixed this with our new construction methods! It leaves you with perfect CAD/CAM manufactured hinging solution. No guessing, measuring, drilling or mistakes! Simply drop in the high quality Robart Hinge Points and you’re done. I hope that you are going to enjoy building and flying this plane as much as I have!
