Hydro-Foam flying hydroplane... video and plans info

I just finished the video for the Hydro-Foam, and posted it on my site. This is a continuation of the Miss Fanfold video thread found here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=376351

recap:
I designed the Miss Fanfold. UAVpilot designed the Hydro-Foam. We are still testing before we release the plans for the Hydro-Foam. We will release no plans before their time They will be available on my site.

We took this video a few days ago while testing. I think it's my best video yet.

high res version (much better)

THAT is the coolest thing I have ever seen done in foam.

I can see a racing league for just these suckers. Half lake course half air

Well, looks like my other projects just got bumped for something else once again.

Wow, these are really cool. I am very impressed. I can't wait for the kit. Do you want to start a preorder list or at least an interest list?

I never even thought of it as also being a perfect snowmobile. That's why I'm not even close to your creative ability. Keep up the good work.

Those are awsome. I have been reading/ watching the "Miss Fanfold" thread, and have started making my own "flying boat". But, I can't wait for the plans, I'd like to build one like that also.
Would I be able to power one of these with a brushed motor and nimh battery?

Miss Fanfold may end up as my most expensive foamie on record. It heavily influenced my decision to move from the center of town to a lake house!

Can't wait for the plans so I can have a pretty one, I just hacked mine out of foam using Mk. 1 Mod 0 eyeball. She's ugly and square, but I think she'll get me there.

Great job, guys!
