    "Foamies Rule"

    Hey Hobby-Lobby,

    I've been working on a few of your jets for some time and I must say that I am most pleased with most of them as they come out of the box. This is good for you because I usually order (2) if they look promising and there's a little video out there of them flying, I'll generally build and fly one as a sort of Demonstrator while I build and scale out the second one. The flying model is used to assess the general flying characteristics and work out optimal CG and other variables, the scale one is the real show stopper and usually far exceeds the normal estimated build times. It is odd also that the level of intensity and concentration is vastly different when flying the two airplanes though they are quite similar. This phenomenon may warrant further study. The heavier, scaled out airplanes are usually pretty scary to fly. I will gladly accept the weight penalty though for some of the missiles, afterburner lights, scale lighting, gear doors and cockpit detail that finds it's way onto the jets. Flight performance once the jet is completed is imited only by the amount of money we are willing to spend on a given project through motor and ESC upgrades, micro retracts, carbon fiber reinforcements here and there and of course we are all still subject to the laws of physics. While I suppose it is all a matter of personal choice, finance and skill, success with these jets on these new and exciting levels is almost always assured. I would like to see more posts of actual aircraft that customers have built. Maybe you could consider building a picture gallery on your website for customers to post their projects. I will attempt to attach a few photos of some of my older completed (I use the term "completed" loosley because they never really are) Hobby-Lobby EDF Jets. Enjoy and thanks, Bobaroo

    Outstanding looking models.

    Great detail and I would be afraid to fly them at all.

    Thanks,
    Keep em coming,
