Second that! I'm learning on my CA Extra stiffy. What are the advantages of depron? Lighter?

Depron is really easy to fix...Epp holds up better in a crash but is really flexiable and to me has a sloppy feel in flight. The Airfoilz planes fly like larger balsa planes if that makes sense...very rigid and handle wind awesome! If you are just learning 3-D you will do well with any of the Airfoilz planes...just fly a little higher when trying new stuff!

My first depron foamie I retired after a year and a half because it looked so beat up. My second foamie is two and a half years old and although beat up I just glue and fly. I broke it in half three times. The elevator has five brakes that are glued and reinforced. The lower front half has had dozens of brakes that I glued and sonetimes spliced in a new lower front area to get rid of multiple old brakes. Still flies great. Flew it this morning four times. Great hover and KE even though the body is not straight anymore. If I straighten it it may not fly as well.

Never retire a plane unless it won't stay airborne! My Stiffy looks horrid. 7 breaks in the tail, gone through 2 extra servos, Motor mount held in by glue. But she still flies hard and fast.
