Designed in August 2001, the Electro-Delta is a new design that features blue foam found at Lowe's home improvement store. This blue foam is extremely light, strong., and cheap.

Powered by the Great Planes T280GD Gear/Motor system the Electro-Delta will roll and fly inverted . When using 8 -700mah NiMH cells the Electro-Delta will fly around 10 min. Install a Speed 400 and wow! You have blue speed dart.

I believe the blue foam we used to build the Prototype Electro-Delta is almost indestructible, to date the prototype shown above has been crashed into a tree and the ground at a 45 deg. angle at full power with only a broken prop.

The Electro-Delta can be cut out with a hobby knife and assembled in just a few hours.
