Forget a anything foamy.

Your moving into balsa range if you want fast, and wind cutting ability.
Fliton Freestyle 330 or the big edge they have.
Big Hyperion Yak, not the small one.
Some of the EF planes might work.
You'll probably need something around a .40 sized plane for good performance.

AirfoilZ, they're wood laminated in Depron. It's truelly the BEST of both worlds.

Have fun trying to get one though, they can't make them as fast as people are selling them they rock so much! Poor Paul, he better start thinking about making a factory with all of that money people are giving him.

Wind is no problem for the AirfoilZ planes I fly them in wind up to 25. 10 to 15 is a walk in the park with the AirfoilZ they handle the wing so good you start to enjoy flying them in the wind as much as in calm conditions.

The Airfoilz line of planes are the top planes right now. They have been out of stock for a week or two but if you can wait of find one, they are great flying airplanes

Perfect plane? [sm=lol.gif] No such animal. There are good planes and there are great planes. There are also horrible planes. They all have certain qualities that are desirable and certain qualities that drive ya nuts.

Let me know if you ever find it.
