    Got my new F22 done. The old one was heavy fan fold....I spread gorilla glue on the canopy and was able to spray it with rattle can paint...which is why it looks glossy....I also spread some on the bottom for abrasion resistance...it is 10 ounces lighter than the previous build, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it handles.

    Awesome, Chip! This is one of the nicest paint schemes I think you've ever done! You going to fly it this weekend?

    Thanks Greg. That is the plan. I just joined the local RC club last night. I have a designated field to fly at now. Last week I went as a guest. I flew the profile F14, the SP3, and the modified Guppy. The gas/nitro guys were impressed. It was funny when I told them the guppy was $ Tree foam and the control horns are tooth cleaners. I will definitely video the flight and post it.

    Ha, the gas guys are always impressed when you can put on an awesome show with a $15 plane! Thanks again for representing FRCFoamies so well!

    A very docile maiden today. This thing is rock steady though. So stable. I made an error in the build and lost an elevator. I was apparently rushing and did not double up the hinge tape on the bottom. I've corrected that now and will have to get it back out for a real throw down. It looks amazing in the air and when just waiting to fly. Launching it is very easy. Great design.

    Nah, nothing compared to your flying. This jet makes everyone look good though. The gasser guys are all over me at the field now. The foam jets really stand out in a crowd of traditional "T" shaped planes....and they like the high pitched whine of the 6x4 props.

    got a bit carried away and cut all the parts out so I'm ready when I get the rest of my bits and pieces.ive run out of proper depron so had to use the soft depron doesn't matter how hard I try it always tears in the places you don't want it to but sanding and filler will sort any imperfections.
