That looks really great Ming!!! I am very tempted on a ship that will fly that fast in such low wind....

I was just about to suggest offering it with a choice of materials. I personally would take the EPP, but it is nice that you will offer that option.

Not available at the moment.
I have many per-order and don't want buyer wait too long.
Just finish a meeting about the mod the tooling.
Mass product should be end of Nov.
EPS materail is much better on this very thin airfoil plane.

hey predator,

do you need a vac bag setup to sheet eps wings? or can you just glue in beds and weight down?

But not durable enough for landings at the slopes we typically fly.
We don't all have flat roads and tall grass to land in.
We'll find ways to stiffen up the EPP as needed. Trust us.

The problem is, this being a molded plane, it comes with no beds.

Ming, like Ian (Daemon) says, EPP is the only material I'm interested in for this plane. I will stiffen up the wing as needed.

If you are decided on only offering the EPS wing, then I will have to cancel my test shot order as the plane will be of no use for me.

It appears there is a "cuff" at the root of the wing like the Easyglider which will make for interesting sheeting. I do intend to try it tho.....

I still would prefer EPP fuse and wing.

Both materail will go production.
You can have EPP Fox, don't worry.
I have few set EPP on hand.
One of my choice is to mold this Fox by more density EPP materail which is 30% heavier than Bee materail.

That's probably fine, too. I don't think it will hurt the plane at all, considering that most people are going to be looking for this to have higher speed performance as opposed to light lift capability.

And given how well it flew in your second video in those light winds, it should be able to carry the extra weight with no problem, in my opinion.

Thanks for being responsive to your customer base, Ming
