Default Tough Jets

Guys; you might want to check out Tough Jets. Their prices are reasonable and the planes fly really well. It turns out coroplast and foam do work well together. And, they are tough! I have one (Their T-15) and have two more (Their F-35) on order. Thanks; Ernie P.

Guys; am I the only one still checking this forum? We used to have a lot of activity on this SPAD Forum. Is everyone doing other things? Thanks; Ernie P.

There are lots of people viewing the SPAD forum but maybe they are shy. I think you are right about foam and coroplast being tough. Some of the guys had a one design pylon plane with .15 to .25 motors. Foam core with 2mm coro skin. Seemed pretty tough, I have not flown mine yet but the guys liked them.

Sir; thanks for the response. That looks interesting. I still fly my old Spadflyer plane (a two inch square length of PVC downspout with a coroplast wing and tail surfaces and an O.S. .46 engine) occasionally. It's been through the wars, but still in good shape. I tried the Tough Jet as an EDF I wouldn't worry about when letting a "new to fan jets" pilot try it. It's been slammed into the ground a few times, but it's quick and easy to repair and really tough. I'd really like to see more participation here, but things have been slow for quite a while. Thanks; Ernie P.

Until this post, I had never heard of ToughJets. I did a search for them, and found this link: ToughJets

They look like a neat idea, and when I get around to building another plane, I will consider one of them. It would also be nice to support a small business, particularly someone already in this hobby.

Sir; that is all true. I might add that their customer service is top notch and their quality is excellent. Dealing with a smaller supplier is always good. You could do a lot worse. Thanks; Ernie P.

I have not yet begun building my F15 yet, but I'm very pleased with how quickly it shipped and how well it was packed. I got an email from one of the company's owners, which I thought was a very nice touch. If this thing flies half as good as the videos on their website, I'll be thrilled. Will post a picture when I finally get to it. Also, very happy to be supporting a small business.

Sir; I know you'll be pleased with the flight performance of the plane. Pay particular attention to the trim settings on the ailerons and elevators. Waiting on the pics. Thanks; Ernie P.

Sir; that I can understand. But flying season is fast coming, so you need to get it finished and ready to go. Good luck with the build. It's pretty easy. Let me know if I can offer any advice. Thanks; Ernie P.
