Foam is very different from balsa. I’m working with it now in order to try to master it so I can include it in my projects.
I figure after about 1000 planes I will get the idea and will be able to finalize some design ideas.
These foam planes are Squirrels.
I’m planning on making some in Arnprior (1h drive from Ottawa where I live).
The target audience is a group of beavers (around 6+ years old).
This will be an interesting experiment.
The foam squirrel requires foam and some balsa.
I’ve not done any costing yet. I want to master foam first and then worry about cost when I have the design candidates.
