No build time lately but when i get some i will be building this and doing a thread on it . Always liked the L19 so i thought i`d try and do a VLF version . Plans will be for MPF and power system is still undecided but i have 3 of these from a different project so ... . Wingspan is 41 1/2 " . Also doing a multi layer wing trying for a clark yish type wing . Hopefully come November i'll have the plans cutout and ready for foam and there may be enough snow to stay inside

SARG5 from Kansas
Have been playing with PROFILE 1/2 /3/4 in blue and pink foam. Looking for something different. Want to build what I am calling SINI-PROFILE. this winter . So as to get all equipment, batt. etc inside of the fuz.
Looks like there is a lot of reading to cover.
I need larger Foam planes for these winds here in Kansas.

I have not even tried any yet but if it goes to that price i never will. I get mad at companys that say it can be bought here or there then to find out that here or there does not sell it or its not in stock. Iam glad to see we can order it at a good price but i hope they relieze we can use other glue if their price climbs above others. I can deal with a little foaming if it costs alot less. . joe

The "reformulated" Foam Tac has an MSRP of $11.99 for a 2 oz. bottle.

I like and use the old Foam Tac but at $12 a bottle I may need to "reformulate" my glue choice!

New Foam Tac
