9mm and STEAM program in Vietnam

9mm
9mm, #1.3, EPP is now available for purchase.  I will update the picture in the next few days.

Vietnam
This past week has been quite busy!  I had a friend visit us from Vietnam.  She is a teacher in Vietnam and was here in the US for STEAM training.  STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.  They added the A to the STEM.  For part of her visit I took her to our training day at our local RC flying field.  There she learned how to fly the Apprentice through our wireless buddy system.  She had tons of fun with it.  We also talked about how we can help her after she goes back.  She will talk to her school about the possibility of having me go to Vietnam for 1 or 2 weeks to help teach RC planes in a STEAM setting to kids K-12.  I know Flite Test has a great curriculum, so I will start there and see what we can do to help out my friend in Vietnam.

Progress on the Citabria, 9mm, and more.

The 4′ EPP Citabria is coming along, though slower than I anticipated due a few issues.  The angle of my hotwire CNC is not as sharp as I would like.  It took me a few days to figure out a different way to cut out part of the wing section.  I finally got it a few days ago.  I am also having some software glitches with my plugin I use for getting the g-code for the mill on my CNC.  That issue I think is now solved too as of a few hours ago today.  I’m making progress, though slower than I had hoped.  I can say, though, that I am quite happy so far with the wing.  If everything goes well tomorrow, fingers crossed, I should have the wing completely cut out of EPP.  I’ll try to get a picture up in another day or two.

I have the 9mm already cut to dimension.  I have not had the time to get it up for sale here on the website.  I should have that up sometime on Wednesday.

Black EPP is in the process of getting ordered.  I am waiting for the final quote from my supplier, then I’ll send them the money.  Hopefully we’ll have a lot of black EPP for sale soon too.

Opening Day

Today is the day!  Hurray!  I will be populating the quantities later today.  We should be ready by this evening.
I will be running a few final tests this afternoon before I allow sales to customers.  I need to be sure everything is in good working order.

We have a limited edition of 10mm #1.3 EPP available, unfortunately our 9mm is on backorder.  I will get the 9mm as soon as possible.

In this picture, you can see the stacks of foam.  Yes, our dining room is a bit messy because we’ve been so focused on getting the foam ready for you!  🙂
What you see in this picture is about half of what we actually have available.

Thanks to everyone who have expressed interest in purchasing EPP foam!  You are all wonderful.
