How to Order

For bare EPP foam planes like our Stingray and Manta, these tricks help the plane last longer with hard abuse:

Consider using "Quick Grip" glue instead of CA for repairs and some assembly steps where front end collisions happen. It is like rubber cement or very thin "Goop" and dries flexible. Quick Grip is thin, easy to apply and doesn't cost much. We find it at Walmart.

We also use "Plasti Dip" thinned with napthalene to paint 3 coats onto the front points of the Stingray just past where the front of the fan meets the wings. (don't paint the whole plane!) It makes a nice "skin" that holds up great for crashes. Plasti Dip is available at Home Depot in many colors including white.

Similar to Plasti Dip is, "Liquid Tape" which can be found as liquid (electrical) tape in many hardware stores. It is very strong to resist tearing on leading edges and exposed corners.
