Proof That Foam and Flame Can Work Together!

Taildragger RC recently announced a beautiful Future jet constructed in EPO foam. This PNP (Plug-N-Play) airframe pushes the boundaries of a material once deemed unacceptable for the high heat produced by a turbine engine. The Taft Futura comes complete with JP 12KG metal retractable landing gear with electric brakes, digital metal gear servos, a main tank and header tank, and has a flying weight between 13 and 15 lbs.

The Futura is designed around a K60G or similar turbine engine. The entire package (less turbine, electronics, and radio system) sells for $1049.99 at Taildragger RC.

I hope they can get them past customs, who confiscated ALL of the Ferrari schemed Viper jets from a container headed to Pacific RC Jets. They said the jets violated a copyright infringement or that's what customers have heard so far.

Gotta love Customs' judge and jury style of play!
