Suggestions for 3d foam planks?
Hey folks...

Been looking at those cool electric 3d foam airplanes. Any idea what one is a good bang for the buck? Just need somthing to take the stress out when not flying the heli :-)
The great planes flatouts look cool.

My favorites are the http://www.foamyfactory.com kits. They are the best flying and most fun I have flown. And I am a planker first.

My favorite kit is the mini Yak54. http://www.foamyfactory.com/yak54.htm

My 2 cents.
Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

Check them out.

They are very nice kits. He has spent a lot of time designing them and the lazer cuts are very accurate. They are the best I have found.My motto is this..Fly...Rebuild...Fly

Hey Fellas, I love to fly my foamies! Have a great time with them. I am currently flying a Charger R/C IDC 33" w/s. I love it on 3S 480 packs. With an 11 x 4.7 GWS prop, I get about 6 minutes of 3D flying.

SilverEagle2- thanks for the link. That Yak54 was so cool looking, I just ordered one!!!

2nd for Charger RC. I fly a shifty pro and my bro flys a yak 37.5. I love the shifty. It does everything well. They are very high quality kits and go together VERY easily. it also makes repairs easier, since the parts count is so low. Running a hacker a20-26m, 10x47 prop, thunderbird 18, and TP 1320's and its very fast and torquey. Hopefully today I'll fly the Yak kit, and I have a CR260 on order.

they also have "builder's packs" that include EVERYTHING minus transmitter that you need to fly. this includes their top power setup and battery.

Just received my Fancy Foam a couple days ago, it looks great, and everything, I mean everything is in the box. All you need is your radio, and a tube of gorilla glue. He even includes the crystal for the included receiver. $259 plus $6 shipping. I got mine in two days.

If you fly indoor my only recommendation is to go really light on everything.Seems like Joe average guy puts way too huge a battery on so they can fly for six days.They fly way better light....I have an E flight Yak on 3cell 900 and I think a little smaller batt may be in order.A lot of the shock flier guys run 480 2 cells on really tiny motors and they fly awesome...If you are outdoors,the weight may help you not get pounded by the wind as bad.

hopefully this link works for the video of the one with ailerons,this must be one low tech company you can even hear the chickens in the background.LOL

I just like the way the guy catches it when he is done flying it,no need for take-off or landing worries.

I am getting one this winter for myself as a trainer.

Keep it simple, buy some 6mm depron and 2 lingths of carbon fibor to reinforce the wings, then make it look something like a plane with a 400 outrunner and a couple of servos. The thing should only cost you about $10 - $12 plus Radio gear.

I have made many diffrent ones, from flying dog houses to UFO lookin clear into jets. Just have fun and remember that it is thrust deflection that you are after.

I notice on Fancyfoams site the only ones recommended for indoor flying is the bi-planes? Does anyone have the yak and fly it inside?
