The Foamy Factory threads on Ezone are the best
place to get answers to questions on all of the Foamy Factory airplanes.
These threads are quite active and often times you can get an answer to
a question in minutes instead of waiting for an email reply. I am
often away from my computer for several days at a time and it makes it
hard to respond as quickly as I would like to. If you are not a
member of Ezone, I HIGHLY recommend that you join. Signing up is
quick, free, and some of the worlds greatest people hang out there.
I learned everything I know about electric RC from reading and
