Kit Features in Detail  
Foam Selection: Genuine Depron or Modelling Foam
We offer customers a choice of Genuine Depron or Modelling Foam. Please inform us of your choice by email after ordering. The price is the same whichever option you choose.

The consistency of Depron and Modelling Foam is almost identical. Both are made from closed cell foam.
However, Modelling foam is about 20% lighter than Depron and also not quite as strong. It is still strong enough though for model building purposes.



Modelling Foam: Modelling foam is flat (no bend in the sheet).
Shown here is a sheet 70cm x 50cm

Depron Foam: Lately Depron BV has stopped making model grade Depron so the sheets now have a slight bend in them. For built up airframes the bend in the sheets should not affect the finished product.

Tabs:
These tabs hold each of the parts in place in the sheet of foam. This protects the parts during transport. But we’ve kept these tabs to an absolute minimum so it should take you only a few minutes to cut through them all with a hobby knife and remove the parts from the sheet.

   
Marker Lines :
Marker lines are very faint lines on the surface of the foam. They are used to show where you need to cut if you want to add optional features like rudders (as shown here). These lines don’t affect the strength of the foam. We also use marker lines for things like the canopy outline, as well as servo mount holes to show you the suggested location to mount the servos.


   
Half Cut Lines:
For all places where the foam needs to be scored and bent to form a corner, we have pre-cut the foam with half cut lines which go half way through. All you need to do is to bend the foam and it will fold perfectly along this line.

 

Carbon Bracing Cut-Outs:
These carbon rod bracing cut-outs are actually a run of 4 half cuts very close together. They go half way through the sheet of foam. All you need to do is to run a flat head screwdriver along the gap to clear out the remaining foam and then insert and glue in your carbon rods.



We have designed our kits to have carbon brace slots which are 64cm and 36cm long. 64 + 36 = 100
Most carbon rods are 100cm in length so you only need to cut the carbon rod once.

 
Underside Half Cut Markers :
RC Powers marks the places where the underneath of the sheet also needs to be scroed and bent with circles. We also include small markers on the foam to show you where these underside half cuts need to be.

 
Pushrod Bend Template:
These cutouts in the foam can be used as a guide to show you where to bend your pushrods.

 
Balance Point Indicators:
We also include these very small cut-outs to indicate the optimal position for the balance point. Placing your finger tips under the wings, you can easily feel for these small holes in the foam and locate the balance point.
