Vaguely remembered someone here long time ago mentioned newspaper and something like wood glue?

The jigsaw puzzle of Aerotetris is a challenge, yet still easier than scratch build from balsa and glue and film. Can't imagine doing scratch build in my garage lol... Did zero progress in any of my repairs or builds/mods over the summer, over 80 F (average 85 F) every night in the garage.


Where can I buy that super light 18gr
Or 25gr Glass fiber cloth nowadays?

Seems Hobbyking is no longer have it anymore .
:-(

There are videos on the Aerotetris site and YouTube showing the paper method used on their awesome Saab Viggen and Draken. Most of their jets are per model 80 through 120mm edf size. Check them out they have some great stuff, even an awesome 90 and 120mm Skyray and many more. You can sit and watch TV in the house and build 80% of the airframe with no mess! It is a 3D puzzle with full instructions. I am looking at the 120mm Yak-130 as soon as it is released!

You meant FW make the same model Aerotetris has already made as 3D jigsaw kit?

It is almost due for the major players to put forth models for Holiday shopping season

Actually it was a hint that the Aerotetris build discussion is neither FW nor poll-related

Just have my thoughts on what I would like to see Freewing do, right or wrong. Plus, I doubt the makers of Freewing products know everything there is to know about what everyone in this hobby likes! By the way, the only reason I brought up Aerotetris is because a fellow edf enthusiast likes an model aircraft they make, that Freewing obviously does not; the Saab Gripen! So I beg pardon for offering this as possibility.

Motion is a pretty small company compared to companies like HH and HK. So, I am sure it has taken a bit of their resources launching the balsa lineup as well as all the supporting components for that BH line. The F18 and F35 are still pretty new as well. I'm sure we'll see some new FW and FL products before too long.
