Brand Overview

Fancy Foam Models (AKA: E-Foamy or Midwest Foam Planes) is a brand of Foam-constructed RC airplane products that is designed and produced by Fancy Foam Models of Maize, Kansas.

The Fancy Foam Models brand consists of Depron Indoor Planes, EPP Indoor Planes, EPP Outdoor Planes, and several trainer airplanes.

The Depron Indoor Plane lineup consists of a couple of versions of the popular Yak 55, the Fenix, the Osiris VT, the Vrolet Freestyle, the Vantage, and the MX2.  All of these models have a wingspan of under 36 inches and a flying weight of around 4-6 ounces.

The EPP Indoor lineup of Fancy Foam Models consists of several kits all in the 32 inch wingspan range.  These models are designed for flying indoors or outdoors in calm air.  Models include the Edge 540, the Sbach 342, the Yak-54, the Yak-55, and the Freestyle.

Fancy Foam's EPP outdoor product offering is similar to their Indoor EPP array featuring, in most cases, a larger 42 inch version of the smaller 32 inch indoor flyer.  Kits include the Freestyle, Yak-54, Yak-55, Edge 540, and Sbach 342.

Rounding out the Fancy Foam Models brand is a stable of trainers that are foam constructed docile flyers.  In addition to the kits the company also sells a variety of supporting accessories including motors, batteries, speed controllers, propellers, receivers, servos, adhesives (tape, glue), and of course, carbon fiber and foam.

The Fancy Foam brand of products can all be purchased directly from the company's www.fancyfoam.com website.
