What is the average life span of a balsa plane?

What is the average life span of a fiberglass plane?

Who cares.

I have found that the foam planes tend to warp over time( and not really that long for it to happen). I live in very low humidity. Fortunately, the light weight still allows them to fly. BUT my moto is to fly the heck out of it! I always trace everything so I can make another and not have to pay $40 for about $2 worth of foam. I can fly my foamies in my yard anytime it is calm. I take the bigger stuff to the club field when I can, and leave the foamies at home. There is a place for both!

The question can not be done in these terms. It can last a lifetime, if you spend the whole life hanging in the garage ceiling ...

This particular one lasted over a year, but with hundreds of flights under his belt. With so many flight hours and landings is natural to get some damage, always easy to repair ... until the final landing.

As it took only a few hours to build, and the hardware was recovered intact, the cost is negligible ... € 20.00 in depron, paint and hot glue ... and above all is fun

Soon, another like this, will fly again ...
