DIY plastic firewalls for FT planes/power pods


So after breaking one of my last plywood Flitetest firewalls I checked out some alternative options for some DIY firewalls. Taking a similar approach to what nerdnic had done (he used a plastic trashcan), I found a plastic dishpan from the dollar store and started cutting away. Once I got to the usable parts of the dishpan, I was able to cut out with scissors 30+ plastic firewalls that are lightweight and durable. All for probably just $3.
