What foam are you guys using for these planes now? EPP and depron are so hard to find now. Has anyone successfully used DTFB?

DTFB with the paper on is way too heavy for a good 3D plane, flimsy and more fragile with the paper off, but much lighter. Model Plane Foam is a good alternative.

Flying Foam still sells EPP....

Hi Tallflyer,

Still hoping you will post non-tiled plans at some stage and some specs for the motors that you mentioned.

Thanks so much,

Ok, turns out that when you open the pdf you can "save as" the image on the first page (or any page?) and it is in fact the whole sheet. I've attached it...

CNC cut Superslo 28 kits!!


Hello all,

With Tallflyers permission, I am pleased to announce that I will be selling CNC cut Superslo kits. All the kits will be made from 9mm EPP foam, and will include, carbon spars, push rods, control horns, motor mount (for the blue wonder motor). These kits will be white, so the decoration is up to you. These will be very nice kits and everything will fall together. The kits are $47, but if you preorder now, you will get it for $40. If you are interested, please PM me.

EPP is hard to come by now, but I have a supplier locally that i get mine from. If you want one, you may as well just buy a kit from me.
