I do believe that Eddie Noble of Nikitis Aircraft has built a 3D foamy with a DA-100. That's right!!!

Gremlin,
The Big Pink lasted a year then I sold it...guy that bought it promptly crashed it a week later (pilot error). I'm sure I'd still have it if I didn't sell it.

If I get time, I'm thinking about doing another big foamy this Summer. We'll see....
Easy and cheap way to get my brother-in-law into the hobby....start with a giant scale for the same price as a .40 trainer setup.

Just thinking of the possiblity of having a 106in extra/yak/edge/wut ever with no bigger but a 40 size engine gives me the goose bumps! I would like to see a 40% Extra 330 with a Hacker motor on it! I would fly it out in my front yard!
