Alternate airframe for Alfa Mig fan/motor??


Okay, I did a super nice build on a new Alfa Mig-15... went to maiden and slid into a pole on landing at the field - wing is sheared off. Repair is impossible since I glassed in the wings for strength.

My question now is, is there a good NON-FOAM airframe I can put this powerplant in??
I'm runnin the Himax 2025-5300 on 3STP2100 with the stock alfa fan. I absolutely LOVED the way this thing flew on this setup, but alas I'd like to get away from foam.

also, I believe $150+ for a foam model is ridiculous.

Any nice, light glass/balsa constructed EDF would be great.

I think the bob e cat for 50mm fan is your only choice! Not a bad choice at all however! And you'll still have to modify the pod for the bigger alfa unit. Everything else thats glassed seems designed for the mini480 at the minimum.
Maybe someone else knows of some glassed kits around 18-25 ozs or a twin kit up to around 50ozs or so.....

The K&A Models Mig 15 or F-86 are glass fuselage and foam core/balsa sheeted wing airplanes. They'll be heavier than the alfa probably but not if you use contest grade balsa to sheet the wings it wont be so bad.

Any Flying Styro would love to have an Alfa fan in it. And you get to keep your arm or leg during the purchase.
