Default "my ultimate depron foamy"

One of my favored foamy model I built over 5 years ago with just under 1600 flying sessions to date. Previously 3 times in the salt water when my spinner came off the motor shaft while doing silly tricks over. It suffered little more damage than my latest drama few days ago while flying lot longer than normal and run out of juice just few seconds before dry landing and finishing in the surf. Pretty embarrassing but I love to share my video footage for your enjoyment. Bit of wash and soak in kero and I'm back in the air just like nothing happened less the ESC which had to be replaced. Enjoy the wet landing.

Basic 6mm depron cut outs.


Touch of colour to start with.


Finished product after 40 hours of work.


Happy chap after the maiden.


In action.
I have just created another depron foamy, this time a Bi-plane after some 8 years after the last one.

After all the mods it's a different model.
Finally sorted out to my expectations after some 4 weeks of a flying "DOG"!

The smallest foamy in my 3D fleet.


Dwarfed next to my Depron giant.


Hovering fun with the modified "Humber"


Lot more fun with this one.
Another toy for the boy, the smallest in my fleet, after few wing mod improvements not too bad for a fun fly in dead calm, but no where near to match my own design "Depron" giant I have so much fun with.
