  2. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    I wondered the same. I suspect they'd be too low in density to be useful. And circular would mean a lot of waste to. I have a foam roller, and it's not EPP. Might be an idea to buy some cheap EPP ones of Aliexpress and see?

  4. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    At the risk of sounding stupid... Has anyone thought of using an EPP Yoga roller ? It says the density is " 2 lbs . per cubic foot " and I have no idea if that would suit but for the price plus free shipping they might help solve the problem. I have searched the net and have not found any info on anyone using them for RC so I assume that the EPP is to dense

  6. What has happened to Foamworks

    This looks like a great replacement for my decrepit CS Eraser! If you can successfully kit this then I'll grab one. Take my money, please! Err, how much is it likely to be anyway? Also, if you are inclined to do a warbird then I'm also very interested.
  7. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    That pricing is CHEAP! Foamworks and CS sold blocks for 150-200NZD a block But we would have to sort shipping out ourselves... I think we are stuffed with getting EPP. Goldfoam it is.;..

    Pete they also do 50mm but I thought at 100 it could be cut in half but would be better for fusalages. I have seen 3 wings cut into 1 x 100 mm sheet

    Sounds very expensive. That's $45 US plus shipping shipping will not be cheap
  10. What has happened to Foamworks

    Looks like it flies great. Could just be the pilot
  11. NZ Foam

    Yeah, but pricepoint would be cheaper. And if designed well to have easily removable parts, you could replace a broken wing or fuse with a new one easy enough
  12. NZ Foam

    it certainly would be easier to source the material and easier to wire-cut. But just not as robust as EPP.
  13. Genuine Higgins Rodent R10

    For sale is my genuine Higgins Rodent R10. I have just about finished refurbishing it from the ground-up. It has new battery, new RX, new paint job, new stickers etc. Has 3 good ino-lab digital servos. Comes with a spare nose-cone as well. These are designed for those big air days when you ballast it up with tons of lead and let it loose. These type of things are known as "lead-sleds" in the US. They are all about speed and silly roll rates. They also class as "PNF" (pointy nose fetish). In a previous life it had a prang, but it has been very nicely repaired and you simply next to impossible to even notice. This is a very tidy and good true flying model. Fun to fly. In near mint condition (i did manage a couple of minor chips in the paint fitting it out ) $400.

    Nah 100mm is great to work with. I cut the planform out and get 4 wing panels stacked in the block, all cut in one hit
  15. What has happened to Foamworks

    I wish I could send it around everyone to have a fly of it. Seriously have outdone myself with this one, pure joy to fly, flies in strong wind like a crazy cat, and cruises around with authority in light winds. Super fast roll rate and great pitch response, giving it fantastic handling and manoeuvrability
  16. NZ Foam

    I wonder if we just make foamies out of the dense EPS foam? That one I built that I posted in the other thread has an EPP fuse, Coreflute tail and a Gold foam wing. Super light and has handled a couple of hard hits in testing. Just a slight crumpled tip which disappeared with the iron... The Fuse has a top and bottom coreflute strap going full length, which helps a lot with stiffness and robustness.
  17. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    Jono - do they do a thinner block? 100mm thick would mean we would have to slice them thinner otherwise the waste EPP would be excessive? Do they do a 40mm? Start another thread about your design and see whos keen to get one? that could give us an idea as to how much to buy etc.

    they look great, Alex!
