Are You going to cut the foam Yourself using a hot wire set up? I made one of these wire setups using a dimmer switch and piano wire strung between wooden dowels and it worked excellent. I had gotten the info on the construction of it from one of the members on this forum years ago so if You can't locate the plans let me know and I'll do My best to show You how. Dan

Do a google search on foam wing cutting. There is a lot available there. If that isnt enough my son sells a video I did on cutting foam thru his website (you will come across it when you view the 8 minute segment posted for free). It isnt difficult but will take some practice. How much experience do you have with RC and model building in general?
