Rc stealth

Rc fanfold foam stealth fighter

This is a speed made foam fighter
Made from fan folded foam it takes 2 sheets to produce 1 airplane.
These are a pusher style rc airplane
I have in the past built templates and cut these out by hand it took about 60 min.to cut a complete kit out, now on laser it takes about 1min per sheet!
Settings on luigi was 400speed for all and
60 power for cut 30 for score
I hot glue everything together
I then install motor mounts,control horns, servos, motor, prop, speed control, and battery.
Foam can be bought at most home stores, I shop lowes and if I find one that’s slightly damaged I ask for a discount I have gotten 50% off before.
This frame cost like 3.50$ to build and you can easily repair it if it crashes by cutting apart bad spots and hot gluing new parts on but in the event of a total loss you can build a new frame and transfer parts.
I have flown these before they’re super easy to build and really fun to fly!

why are you making it?
rapid development of a super cheap way to fly.

No it is the kind u get at lowes/home depo that goes behind vinyl siding comes in a continuous sheet then folded in 2foot by 4 foot sections I believe there is approximately 25 in a stack
