Hi folks. Im a new guy on the block. Im hailing you from Kuwait. This is my home till I redeploy back home in Feb. I'm very interested in Foamies. I have toyed around some out here with what I have available to me, which isnt much at all. I was wondering if anyone has tried to develop an SR-71 foamie? Im just wondering. I think that it would be an awsome project.


I love the site.

Take Care
Brian

Northeast Sailplanes used to have an SR-71. I didn't see it on their website, but I've seen it in a recent magazine ad.

You might email them and ask them. www.nesail.com

If it's GOT to be an SR-71, there's no substitute.

If you just like the look and want a really neat plane, have a look at this one:
http://www.multiplexusa.com/product_fs.htm

The video from the eZone review just makes it look very, one of the things I like about my TwinStarII. The Canard Elevator is really a neat idea too. Kudos to Mutliplex for having the stones to do this. It was designed to transport easily too, which is a big plus for a plane that size.

Otherwise, I'm sure you can find a Blackbird if you put your mind to it.

I have dreams about flying an SR71 Rc model. I saw real one in a aircraft mueseum in Oregon. What a beautiful plane, 105 ft long, matte black. It blew me away that I was able to take photos of it when only a couple of years back I would have been locked up for doing just that.
