Starting a thread for all topics related to DW Foamies. Hoping this can be used in conjunction with the future DW Foamies thread in the Airplane Manufacturer's section.

I've owned: 40" Yak 55 Fusion, 40" Juka x2, 48" Yak 54, and just ordered a 34" Raven for backyard flying. Cannot wait to own more DWs!
