THE BEST foamy!

ok guys after being dumb and dumping my monte (the best foamy on earth) i realized there out of production. i got myself an e-flite tribute which has got to be the WORST foamy. the elevators broke off today so now im looking for a new foamy.

any of you know a good foamy for a himax brushless motor. im having terrible luck, all the planes i like need outrunners. again if you know a great foamy or a fairly cheap esc, outrunner combo let me know. please, any suggestion would help!

Re: THE BEST foamy!

youngflier, ive got a shocki for sale (if i were you i'd scrap the foam on it, its a slightly tatty Ikarus Yak)

Its got an Axi 2208/26, Ripmax SD200 servos, GWS 4ch RX, Castle Creations 25amp speedo and a flightpower 3s800mah pack. I will also throw in the charging leads for free .

Im wanting 100 for it complete (so about $180) but if wou want to save postage costs then just let me know and i'll strip,the airframe and send off the electronics. Hope it helps,

George
