You can get it in sheets from slofly:
the stuff some of these guys are using isnt depron sheets right? it looks like it comes from a solid block. like this one
got my own answer. yup this guy uses depron and heat molds it or something. not quite clear from his web page

im going to try and wrestle up some meat trays tommrow though and see what can happen

I have read of some guys cutting the bottom wing off at the strut outwards.. Is anyone finding this to help? Seems like a nice simple mod..

Tram: alot of people remove the entire bottom wing it seems to climb and fly faster. The wings are just glued on so you can pull them off and stick them back on as you like.

Here's my latest creation conjured up last evening for my x-twin electronics:

X-twin powered pusher "Fighter Jet"
Material: 3mm Foam (Foam Plates)
14" wing span with built-in Dihedrals and curved aerofoil
Weight without electronics is a hefty 12.5g!

Maybe a bit too hefty but I shall fit the electronics today and hope for a maiden as well. I have built in an extra large wing chord with dihedrals and large stabilizers to achieve slow and controllable flight for the simple pusher system. Imagine a reasonably slowflying jet plane.

Let's just hope everything goes well.

welp i picked up a broken christmas return one today. i figured it was busted but thought id have a try at fixing it. the rx is completely toast. it was broken before but now i let some of the smoke out of it while trying to fix it. the motors work fine and the tx seems fine(no way to really test it). im gonna return it tomorrow unless someone it desperate for parts.
its a red biplane channel b

As me - but you can fix it! Carefully scratch off some of the plastic material around the contact with a welder and then weld the cords ( in the right position ) to the tiny sheets of metal coming out out of the plastic!!!

Anyone found a way to charge the Lipo in the AA with conventional Lipo charger? I took the plug form the tranmitter and tried it with my KC-100 Lithium Charger from DWE and it wouldnot charge.

Moded Charging connector

I have been very frustrated with the direct charging of the Tx, as it is loose and do not charged fully, so decided to cut out and fitted with connectors to be charged by independant lithium charger. I set to minimum 1 cell at 110mah and it works. I get a reading of 4.3volt on full charge for the lithium,
Here is the pic

Thanks for the input. So you're going directly to the connectors on the battery?

I didn't want to cut onto the plane yet, if possible. My charger shows charged when trying to charge through the built in charge connector, even though the battery is discharged.
