sorry for the wreck. its always a bummer to wreck! i use to not paint my planes till it was worthy enough to stay in the air. didnt want to spend extra time painting, then it crashes... at least that was my excuse.. untill my wife told me she thought not painting it was bad luck. havnt done it since.

Hi:
When you build one of these with the paper backed foam board from the 99 cent store, Do you still add the carbon fiber rod or just tape the top and bottom or just let the paper stiffen it up?
Thanks
Don

Kevin,

He usually gets it from me.

Once in a while I'll head out to the LA area for events or to visit family, and I always bring a case of 6mm and 3mm depron with me to sell to the Chino guys.

I'll be out there again Aug 10-12 for Big Jolt at the Prado field in Chino. I'll have depron with me.

Pat

Not normally, but that's a good idea. My CA trips are usually:

AMA Convention in January (Ontario Convention Center)

RCX in April (Long Beach Convention Center)

Western States in June (Apollo Field in Van Nuys)

Big Jolt in Aug or Sept (Prado in Chino)

I have family in Long Beach, and we come to visit often. I'll try to remember to let you know when I'm in town.


Hey Al, do any of the stores there carry depron?

Pat

None of the brick and motor hobby stores I know of. But Mike at DW Foamies sells it by the sheet . He's located in San Diego.

Josh should have the guys at Pegusas stock some. I know it would sell. Almost all of the hobby shops here in Phoenix carry depron now.
