Does anyone here fly the 3D foamy airplanes? the kind I'm looking for are al foam board construction and Ive seen them at the shows like the AMA show. They look great to fly and you don't need much room at all to fly them.

Any recommendations would be great.

Here is what I was looking at back when I was thinking about buying of those planes. I never did buy one though.

Ive often wondered what those grill like things are on the ailerons of those 3d foamies, what are they for?

They look cool, but dont know what there for.

This place is where I get mine from. They have all different types and sizes of planes. They sell kits as well as plans to download and make yourself. I just buy 6mm Depron and make my own.

where can you buy the Depron locally or is there another substitute you can buy at a Lowes or H/D???? I like the thought of building one from scratch and I have everything needed to build one other than the foam.

I'm pretty sure they're used to slow down air flow allowing the model to fly at slower speeds while still having enough airflow over the control surfaces. They also lighten the plane.

The vertical fins at areas other than the rudder are used to you have more surface area for knife edge flight.

Not really for 3D, but http://www.rcpowers.com has some pretty cool plans for foam pusher airplanes. I want to build the F-22 and F-35 with a K2 airfoil added to it.

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

I built and fly a Leadfeather EPP Yak 55 from rcgroups outside. Works really well and very cheap to build. There are a few sites around that provide kits of this plane too if you don't want to build from scratch.

I also have a e-flite ultra micro 4-site for flying in a gym. 2mm foam and very susceptible to damage but flies really well.

I love them both....

what ever foam you choose will do the job , just dont try and fly them in the wind or at the local giant scale field . have owned at least 10 foam planes and used them to learn the 3D stuff with, and when they get all balled up just go get another. used to assemble to flight in 2 hours

I've had several different foamies- all are fun. My favorite for outdoor is the CR-1 from Chargerrc.com. Flies great, tough, easy build. I call it a two beer build...

Flying foamies reminds me of sex in the 70's..Lots of fun, no serious consequences..

Im thinking one of these foamies would be good to fly at home, I have 15 acres but no runway, and outside my house is a 3 1/2 acre grassed area thats surrounded by trees, thats one thing Im missing with airplanes compared to helis, I cant just walk outside and fly anymore.
