MS Composit (Fishers, Indiana) sells EPP foam aircraft

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MS Composit (Fishers, Indiana) sells EPP foam aircraft that are pre-
hinged and pre-airbrush finished and ready to fly in record time.
They are ultra-bounceable and are made from almost UNBREAKABLE EPP
FOAM!
EPP foam (Expanded Polypropylene) is a high-technology impact-
absorbing material that is perfect for anything that might crash into
something. Bash it, smack it, twist it or crash it - it just bounces
back! Softer and lighter than a feather pillow, yet tougher than a
boot, space-age EPP foam just keeps coming back for more punishment
and more flying! You won't believe just how much punishment an EPP
model will take!
(or how fast they build !) All MS Composit EPP models are airbrush
pre-finished with a long lasting eye catching paint scheme. (No
painting, covering or colored tape wrapping is needed) All MS
Composit EPP models were developed and perfected by master- award
winning designers. They ALL have flight characteristics which will
amaze the most proficient flier yet they are forgiving and resilient
to withstand the abuse which may be given them by the beginning
modeler.
MS Composit makes EPP foam
Airplanes in the following designs:
Gliders, Aerobatic, Semi-scale as well as the Swift family of
flying wings.

Gee, there for a minute that looked to me like it said "MS Compost"
actually, that should read "KINDA, SORTA, MAYBE, ALMOST, unbreakable EPP foam."
sorry, but I have SEEN EPP fuselages snap cleanly into separate parts.

What difference does it make? He may be correct and you might just be telling a tall tale. This is USENET - not the corner pub. -- Ray

ROFLOL!
Given who probably it is, I would have to say he is more than likely correct. Too bad his approach is always so aggressive, it turns most off and does more damage than good. But those are choices he has made.

Nor to me. However, the lingering accusation of the original post being made by someone who habitually does it regularly indicated someone like this might ring a bell with someone. Thus, I looked up the domain owner to see if anyone recognized him or her.
Anyone? Or have we got yet another case of an overzealous individual who believes that a commercial post, which is very much "on-topic," should be slammed simply for being commercial? -- Ray

It could be the Jindrich Jezek that owns MS Composit, or another that is a Dept Head at a Univ. in the Czech Republic, or any of a number of others in that corner of E Europe. Pick a card..........any card.

Do they use a carbon rod in the wing?
I have a Super Zoom and with a carbon rod in the wing and carbon stri in the fuse this is one strong plane that does Bounce :

As far as I can tell, he EPP Foam on the MS Composit is standard run o
the mill EPP foam. And that's great stuff in terms of ability t handle abuse and repairs

Carbon rod in the wing? Afraid not. They do give you some thin fuzzy string, probably sourced in eastern Europe. Bad pictogram implies that it is to be soaked in CA. I think everybody has looked at it and instead run down to the hobby shop to pick up CF spars.
"Ready to fly in record time"??? If we're talking record time in building a plane with inscrutable hieroglyphic instructions, then yes let's call Guinness World Book, otherwise it's clear somebody had a few too many Guinness' before posting all those superlatives about this plane.
It's a nice flying plane after you correct all the problems and engineer your own work-arounds. My second one is so much better than my first build.

The planes are pretty neat IMHO. I have built a bunch of balsa planes and didn't think I would care for a "foamie" but the Unique was fun to put together. The instructions are the worst >>>"inscrutable hieroglyphic" as NJNJ says pretty much sums them up. It is certainly not indestructible, but it does take some abuse, except for the fragile tailfeathers which are not EPP. But it flies great, even in the hands of a relative novice, and it looks good. The family all agrees of the several planes I have, it "looks the best in the air".
I went the CF route, but I am going to get a Blade Dancer and put it together with 3M 4693 adhesive and use the string in the fuse. I think it keep the fuse straight, but also allow better compression in a crash. I will still use CF in the wing. I have glued some samples of EPP with the 3M adhesive, and have also embedded CF and string in the foam, and am impressed with this glue. I also repaired by aileron hinges with this glue after an attempt to repair them with CA failed.
