Default SuperFly - New Foam..

Ok guys..

I've been asked several times - "Can I still get a SuperFly from the "old" foam?"

Well, the "old" foam is almost gone, but the good news is.. the "new" foam ROCKS..

Rather than try to tell people about the new foam, I thought I'd take a video..

Warning: If you have a weak stomach for airplane abuse, please do not watch the following video..

Thanks for the Video.

Looks like the new Superfly is still pretty much indestructable.

I might have to put another one together.

I'm totally comfortable saying the old foam is every bit as good as the new foam..

LOL, about the throwing the spray paint can at the poor thing Jeff.

BTW, I've flown my old foam one into the side of our barn, through a barbed wire fence, and into the pickup bed of my truck more times that I care to admit to.... besides mother earth...

into power lines, hit a horse, our dog tried to eat it, bottom of the stack in the trailer going to SEFF, being attacked by Laine (Imopar) during night combat, in a bag on the Valks rack....

Does the new foam stand up to those kind of abusive things??

Well, I flew it through some barbed wire today, let some horses try to eat it, smacked the top of my trailer with it today and then tried to get it out of a tree with a 1/2 gallon jug of frozen water..

It is still flying..

Welllll I gotta admit the new foam looks fairly tough after all that! Two things though....

You obviously haven't "herded" the horses with it when the wifes not at home, they are hanging around the fence watching you fly too much.

Some CA, a new prop, and the SF should be ready to go again, that's easily repaired damage.
