HOLY COW!!!
That's impressive!

Maybe I should read stuff in the Foamies section more often! I did not realize there was stuff like this out there. It seems so flexible, yet it seems to hold its shape well in flight. Kept waiting to see the wings fold up in a loop or something.

Nice Job!!!!

Nimble with Gimbals
It was powered by a PJS-550E with 3s1p LiPo and constructed out of EPP. Too cool for words.

are the rudder and elevator controlled with fishing line?
metal control rod couldn't take that 360 bend in the beginning of the vid.
all that was lacking was a truck running over it.

I have been building and flying model airplanes for about 50 years and believe I have not ever seen anything so impressive since I saw my first poportional RC model fly in 1970.

You may have something here which will revolutionize the model aircraft hobby.

My congratulations on your work.

Now, please post some detail for us. Above all, seriously consider getting this model and others like it into production.

Regards from Canada

If you build it, we will want it,

If you sell it, we will buy it.

If you don't want to get into the business, contact GWS and seel them the rights or kit it yourself and let Aircraft world handle the selling and export for you.

Great idea and I would love to have one.

Peace,

That is incredible!!!

Some one has GOT to bring these to the US! No joke - they would sell faster than any other 3D electric to date!

The good news is I wouldnt have to see people flying Zagis or Slow Sticks anymore because they are hard to break - Id at least get to see something attractive that is 3D capable crash while they try their hand at all new manuevers

Im so tired of seeing Zagis....please bring this thing to the US ASAP!!

can you please post some specs...ie weight, dimensions, power, batteries...etc.

I can make some sense from the website, but not much. Your pictures are very descriptive. Almost enough to build it without instructions.

Now..where do we get this epp foam from.

Who needs depron anymore
