Magic ..

I knew that you were not some newcomer to the hobby so expected a good reply ... and I got that.

I have to admit that glued foamies - yes they end up very quickly as though rats have been nibbling at them !! Sometimes like Grizzly Bears have had a go !! My Red 50mm T45 looks like a buzz-saw has been running round it !

I don't remember traditional balsa jobs looking like it so quick !

I started adding tape round leading edges a while ago and glad I did ...

Vampire .. I keep looking at it - but foam booms ? I can see them not lasting my flying at all !!
