    RE: Foam flying hydroplane

    Some are , while others are NOT ! ( big P.O.S. )
    Also , they are NOT for the novice flyer .
    \"experienced \" is just another way of saying that you already did all the mess ups and should know better now !

    RE: Foam flying hydroplane

    Thanks,
    Thougtht it might be cool.

    Warning about a possible P.O.S. is well taken. And $25 shipping for parts, if available, sounds like it could get ugly.

    I'm used to having controled fits with the Shockwave and getting parts sent free. Don't need another one of those.

    No experience flying means parts will be needed.

    RE: Foam flying hydroplane

    Ok, I see one for about $125 and one for about $350. Are there more?

    Any recommendations for best case scenario? Ease of getting parts and quality? Not particularly in that order.

    RE: Foam flying hydroplane

    The ones that are made out of EPRON are a LOT more sturdy and can take a LOT more abuse .
    And if you never flew before ... you might consider getting a second hand prog like REALFLIGHT and the controller so you can practice BEFORE take off ( ) , or should I say , TRYING to take off

    Suggestion .... make yourself some xtra parts after you get your first one , that way , you don't have to pay out LOTS of bucks for those extra pieces of foam . ( certain ones are a LOT more complex than others and others are simple made )

    \"experienced \" is just another way of saying that you already did all the mess ups and should know better now !
