Is the Dollartree foamboard?

I have a Mikey's RC FPV on my shop table right now. I built it using Elmer's foamboard from Michaels. From what I've read it's heavier than Dollartree board.

My Tiger

2006 Triumph Tiger, 18,000 miles, full factory hard luggage. She's a torquey 955cc triple, a joy in a straight line and gives the sport bikes a run for their money in the twisty bits.

Thanks

The link provided great background. As a Canuck, seeing a photo of a trio of warbirds sporting RCN livery is great reference material.

Please excuse my ignorance: what is the plane shown at 8:00 in the first movie? British markings but it looks similar to a FW-190

In the shadow of giants

I recall my older brother bought 'me' a Cox PT-19 when I was about 10. It 'flew' once and that was that.

I don't think I can modify the poll for the old timers... er, very experienced among you :D

Flattening the curve

What you have described is essentially what I experienced when I added ailerons to my Super Cub.

Definitely more responsive on the roll axis with the reassurance of a bit of self-levelling from...

That's a big difference

1.75 lbs/cubic ft is big difference.

In my hand it feels a lot more dense than the foam used for my Super Cub wing, which is EPP if I recall correctly but only a bit more dense than my Fun Cub...

I have access to a private field which is terrific. The only downside is that it is a hay field so ground takeoffs and landings are a no-go.

Yes it was my Super Cub.
