List of EDO, Elapor, or Z-foam Jets with Landing Gears
I'm looking for a good list of EDF Jets that are made out of foam like EPO or Elapor - not the hard, brittle stuff! To narrow the scope more, I'd also like the jet to have landing gears and a steerable nose wheel.
I know GWS is upgrading all their models to EPO foam (good choice!), but as far as I can tell the only kit they have so far with EPO and gears is the F-15 Eagle.
I've only been able to find 2 kits so far:
1.) GWS F-15 Eagle
2.) Freewing T-38 Talon
Can ya'll help me add to the list? Thanks!

RC Lander Jets:
F-16 (all 2-seat versions)
L-29 Albatros (Aerocell..similar to Elapor but harder)
Habu (z-foam..similar to EPO)
Hobby King (Various MFg)
T-38 (might be the same as freewing)
(maybe EPO)Mirage 4000

JPower F-5 and F-18 if you can still find them
But you don't need landing gear on any of these - They all hand launch very easily with today's power available.

This is about the best I can do -
X-Flight had them, but are out of stock. HL has various parts, but no stabs.
I think we'll need to wait until JPower gets a new distributor.
Too bad, they are really great little jets.
I sent an email to hobby-exporter.com. We'll see what they say.

Hey, very cool this thread became active again! Since I posted the question over a year and a half ago, a lot of new EPO jets have come to the market. What's better is that the price has come down some!
Right now there are a few EPO jets that Bananahobby.com carries that have my attention. Also interested in that new Parkzone Habu... Though it is priced ridiculously.
