Joel is MetroGTI on RCGroups

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. Several additional variations have evolved including an EDF version and a couple of float planes. The current EPP version which is very durable for full contact combat events and FPV.
