Cliorc - Nice looking plane. Whats it weight? (About) I snuck in two flights after work,,, BRRRRRRR

Heres a few pics of my Fancy Foam Ultimate. Good plane for 3D. KE's rock solid and does most other 3D moves well. Hoovers so so. I'm going to go back to the Extra 300L I think. I have had 3 or 4 of these and they are solid 3D planes. I have a Himax HC2812-0850 brushless, 9x4.7 APC, Hitec 55's, a Berg 4 Channel Receiver, and 11.1 V 1320 mAh Packs. A proven combo. Theres a link below to the Extra.

Also, Fancy foam has fantastic customer service,, second to no one.

I've the Blast which I think is the UK version of the Flash and certainly it's good for learning 3D, KE's are as easy as and I forgot to switch models once and with a hand launch had the elevator working in reverse (ouch) broke the nose into 3 bits, a bit of CA and some 2mm Carbon Fibre strips cut in and it's fine. The other one I'd possibly look at if I was buying again is one of the Airfoilz http://www.airfoilz.com/
I bought the Blast with a view of I don't mind if it gets bent, however if you want a nicer to fly more precise foam plane then think you'll really struggle to beat the Multiplex Acromaster and much prefer it the the Blast which I consider as my practice plane. The Acromaster handles the wind a lot better as well.
Hope that's of help.
Neville
