Joel was inspired to come up with his design after he took some liberties with the original Blue Foam Wonder which itself
has been around for sometime. He both stylized it even more and developed a better flying aircraft to boot. The name
reflects the fact that the originals were built out of blue fanfold foam. We have made several versions of the kit over the
years and the current EPP version is very durable for full contact combat events and FPV. In several discussions we played
with the idea of making a larger version which could be used for a large, slow FPV platform. The BluFO XL is the 150%
version that came out of those discussions. It is a big, slow flyer that is very stable and can best be described as
"majestic". Check out the YouTube playlist linked below to see it flying in daylight as well as some lit up night flights.
We suggest an APC 12x6E prop and a 2200mah 3S battery. As with the original EPP BluFO, this kit is only available unpainted.
The BluFO XL Build Video
Andrew "BlindFury" Walters built a BluFO XL in the booth at Joe
Nall and recorded it. (yes, it really is that big) He put together a playlist
of 5 videos running about a total of 25 minutes showing the sequence. if you are curious what it takes, check it out.
The link below will always contain the latest instructions which
might be more up to date than the paper copy included with the kit. Plus you can click on the pictures and get large color versions
to better see details. (The BluFO-XL is the same layout as the original)
