I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Anyone used these folks before? (link below)

Flying Foam UK

They seem to be only ones around to have powered flying wing kits available at the moment (and a decent price too!) but no contact details for them except an email address so a bit hesitant to hand over cash!

Any info appreciated - or if anyone knows of a good supplier with similar kits available I would appreciate that info too please!
Cheers all
Ben......

If you pay by paypal, and whatever you order does not turn up, you should be covered on their buyer protection policy.....

I would probably look for a wing built from EPP or EPO, instead of EPS, like those are. EPP and EPO are much more resilient, and bounce back to shape from an impact. EPS will crease and dent and look tatty very quickly indeed. I don't know if you have seen the 48" wing that I was flying a bit last year, but that is a really nice kit.

It is called the Unicorn, and is a 48" span Epp wing, with carbon spars. It flies really nice, with a flat glide, and is nice and agile too. You can build it as an electric model (it is designed for that) or just leave the powerset out for a pure glider. The core kit (i.e. without powertrain) is only $69.95, so not hideously expensive. I've ordered a few kits from them in the past, and they have always been really helpful. In fact, I may still have an unstarted one in the workshop......

Cavernous, I wish! I know there is a box in there, and I know the foam wing cores are in there. Whether the accessory packs and other bits are in there or not though, I do not know, and would have to check.

You at the club night this evening?

Andy

Thanks Mark for authorizing the account. I understand this is a club forum so I will try not to intrude too much.

As Mark posted I have noticed people being directed to my website through the link on this thread. On reading the post I understand there is suspicion as to whether FlyingFoam UK is a reputable company and whether orders will be shipped.. I would like to reassure club members that orders will indeed be shipped and I am not in the business of ripping people off!

I am a fellow modeller myself and these wings have proven very popular in my local clubs. I have been flying this design of wing for many years and I believe it is one of the best flying wings on the market. I have recently developed a CNC manufacturing system as part of my University studies and have used it to put these wings into production.

EPS foam has been chosen as the building material for these wings as it is possible to manufacture very strong and resilient wings at a fraction of the price of the EPP alternatives. The strength of the model is not in the foam but rather the design and construction of it.
Each wing panel has a full span-wise cut that allows a 1/8” balsa sheet spar to be sandwiched between the leading and trailing edge wing panels, producing an extraordinary rigid wing. Dent resistance has also been built into the wing by the use of a balsa leading edge, covering the vulnerable frontal area of EPS foam.

If any one has any questions about these wing please don't hesitate to ask.

Many thanks

Matt
