    One of my other hobbies is flying RC planes. There has been an ongoing thread on one of those forums about a project a guy has been doing that is incredible. He built an RC plane in his DORM ROOM at college out of entirley pink foam. It has a 24' wingspan. That's feet, not inches. It's a long read, and this link is just the third of the three threads that it encompassed, but if you want to read and see something absolutely crazy, look at this:

    Wow...that's pretty impressive. I wonder what gave him the idea to use all foam. I guess you'd say its "pretty in pink." [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    That foam is a really neat material for making RC planes. It's cheap, durable, and you can easily make any shape you want. Usually, however, it's used on small planes, like witha 3 foot wingspan. Not 24 feet!!
