Been a busy spring for me already!

My flying buddies Mike, Don, and Ken started their new company www.modelplanefoam.com and are now selling some awesome foam. It is pure white, no skin, no perforations and no waves. But it is the same material as FFF.

As a matter of fact, their first production run sold out in a week! So they have more on the way.

Anyhow, the new foam inspired me to build some planes.. that and it has been so long since i built a plane that i was missing it.

SO first up was the Buck Rogers Starfighter. Flies very nice. I am still getting used to it but it is very stable. It tends to roll fast when it gets upside down, like it really wants to be upside down! But it comes out of it with no problem. It looks really cool in the air too! The white foam means i didn't have to paint the dang thing so it came out really light.

It makes it a little scary when you are pointing at the ground and it doesn't respond right away! But...Continue Reading
