Graupner Terry, is very popular. I have owned two and loved them. Rudder and elevator only and a bit small, no reinforcing in the wing. I have been waiting for months for Ikarus Turn On to arrive to replace it. the hobby shop sent it seamail from Florida, so it may turn up in a year's time. sigh..

John,
The Terry flys well for a small foamy, but it somewhat fragile for a foam plane. It does repair easily though. If you're looking for something to take some abuse, consider the Pushy Cat, which is EPP foam.
