    I just got a bunch of free Depron... Now what?

    RCFOAM.com moved to Colorado Springs from ATL last year, and I finally went by there yesterday to check it out. Well... it's in a giant shared warehouse space, and looks pretty disorganized IMHO. Definitely a work in progress. That being said, they have a huge inventory. After buying some nice big sheets of EPP, I got permission to go "dumpster diving" in their junk bin. I managed to fill my car with some decent sheets of 3 & 6mm Depron, and 2mm Coroplast. I've never constructed with either before, and I was wondering if anyone had some simple design ideas for FPV capable planes? I'm not really into those mini silhouette foamy designs...

    P.S. If you live in the area, and need some Depron, PM me! I went a little overboard...

    Thanks guys! A night flight with that Geobat lit with green LED's ought to freak out the neighbors And J, I'd be happy to bring a few sheets for you next time we plan to fly. Not kidding when I said I "filled my car". And if you need more, It's probably worth a trip down there. If nobody uses it, it goes in a landfill... what a waste!

    Are you going to the Hartsel meet, Volto? Maybe I'll see if I can borrow a bigger car, then make another run down there so I can bring some to share with everyone.

    Yes indeed. I'd love to cut out a bunch of the same plane, and we could all get the same cheap motors and have a squadron of disposable combat/pylon racing/stunt planes for the FPV meets.

    Oh man, that would be fun! Wish I didn't fry my dx6i. Those small OrangeRX for DSM2 are damn near disposable at $6
