Sadly this foam boar was recieved warped. If I hold one side down on a table the other corner is 4 inches off on the other side. I have tried a blow drier as well as putting the foam under a piece of plywood for 4 days in a temperatur controlled room. All of these meathods havent changed anything. As a result, my bushwacker stabilizers and wingtips are warped. Unknown on 13th Jan 2017
This foam is not just better because it's water proof. The quality of the planes built with this foam is head and shoulders better. The appearance of the finish planes is significantly better. It seems to be much stronger and resists moisture. The white foam board is a sponge in comparison. I will not use anything else from now on. It is well worth twice the price of the white foam board.

Ok, been scratch building planes (countless number now) for a while out of dollar store foam and I was expecting a few problems with this new foam board. First, does it adhere as well as the white since it seems to have a coating? YES, better! Second, does it cut the same? YES! Third, does it hold paint? YES, better! Fourth, is it durable? YES, better! Last, does it de-laminate as easy as the white? NO!
In other words, this stuff is great to work with. It's superior in every way to dollar store foam board. I highly recommend it. Even buying it in bulk at $2.00 a sheet is preferable than the $1 foam because I don't have to use a $1 paintbrush to seal it plus the cost of sealer. Can't say enough good about this stuff. You want one down side? You do have to prime it if you want a good paint job with certain colors such as red, yellow, etc. This would increase weight but then again, that's why I overkill on the engine size of every plane I build. Thanks for making this stuff!!! My 50 sheets will go fast!! Kyle on 21st Apr 2016
The Flite Test team got it right with this waterproof foamboard. Easy to build and even easier to paint. No more fussing with sealing tape trying to make a good looking airplane, just spray paint your heart out. Nolan on 6th Apr 2016
Worth the extra cost over the white paper foam board. Seams stiffer and like it will hold up much longer; (time will tell). No more worry of night time dew on the ground or other weather conditions. Love the box art also. Time to build some more.... Thanks Flite Test and Adams for a great new product for our plane builds. DM on 3rd Apr 2016
