Hello and welcome... (EDIT: I would to suggest you read through as much of the thread as you can because some new ideas have come to light and there might even be and updated set of plans further in the thread)

This is a blog for these Foamie Flying Wings that we have been having so much fun with. It's not really anything new. It's just how we do it.

Everyone that see's them fly wants one and this is just to help guide them along through the process of getting one flying. It will save me time in the long run from not having to explain it to so many people.

Dis-Claimer and Credits.
KFC - Chris DeGraaff started bringing wings to SEFF to sell (see HoJazz Videos)
Matt Kloss Dissected his wore out DeGraaff wing, made some changes and built a bunch of them to use for paintball shooting at SEFF 2011. I had volunteered to help out with the event.
I got permission from Chris DeGraaff and Matt to present this build on RCGroups.

I want to keep the blog on point. Feel free to comment, but dont get your itty bitty feelings hurt if I delete a post or 2 to keep things on track.

I know guys will ask for tiled plans. It's not something I'm familiar with at all.
If someone else wants to step up and make that happen... then they can send it to me and I will post it here as well.


Here is a Grayson Hobbies set of links for the electronics if you are interested;

I love the Hobby King Turnigy Park 450 1200 KV with a 10 x 4.7 prop.
Matched with the Hobby king Plush 30 Amp ESC

You will also need a charger.

Here is a place to get colored box tape to decorate with. They dont add much weight but they add a lot of strength and look great.
