Hopefully Jergen or someone "over there" will know.....
In the pics below, are B/DPLR's planes balsa or foam?

They were balsa, even down to the tube spar for the wing which was rolled 1/32" (or whatever the metric size is) balsa. BP gave me a set of plans for this Edge years ago following the TOC and it was a GREAT flying airplane although a bit heavy by today's standards.

I also remember reading the plans where published in some euro magazine and I tried to obtain a copy of the mag but failed.

That was the last year CPLR and BPLR were flying balsa planes - after seeing all those German Indoor planes made from Depron.

Jürgen, Does Depron fly better, or is it just quicker to make the planes?

Hi Tom,

Depron models are quicker to make and they probably look better than "see through" models. They are also more robust, which is an important factor for Indoor flying.
