EPP foam is the perfect material for simple 3D aircraft because its durable and lightweight. Try out a new maneuver with confidence because a crash is not going to bother this bad boy.
The Large flying control surfaces and airfoil shape wing offer great control authority for aerobatic and 3D maneuvers. The ailerons and elevators come pre hinged keeping building time to a minimum

Great flying beginner 3D plane, and works as a slow acrobatic trainer at low throws. The design of the ESC and battery openings makes the nose rip off with a prop strike, which is unavoidable due to the laughingly pathetic landing gear wire. I suggest using some real music wire and bending a replacement before installation, and some carbon fiber rods in the nose. Other than those problems a nice plane. Needs 200W motor at least to make it perform.
