Bob Furr uses one of the
World’s Lightest (home-made) Foam Cutting Bows
to Cut Foam Wings for his Model Airplanes
And that’s just one trick that makes his method one of the thriftiest, easiest, and maybe the smartest method for cutting foam wings…
Why shouldn’t you benefit from his method too?
- Save up to $200 up front by NOT buying a “pro” rig — because you won’t need it.
- Save as much as $45 per plane by cutting your own wings (this method works for almost any type of model). There may be many excellent suppliers for foam wings — but when you compare the high cost of pre-cut wings shipped to your door, you see how smart you are to cut your own.
- Make replacement wings for ARFs (“Almost Ready to Flys”) and other planes. Why trash nice $150-$250 planes after the first crash?!
- Start cutting wings the day you get the video!

If you’ve seen all the other complicated, awkward, and sometimes expensive foam cutting methods out there — this is not them! This simple, step-by-step process is easy to follow and gets you professional results without the hassle or the expense!
This unique technique was originally developed by Bob Furr, of Omaha, Nebraska — a lifetime model airplane enthusiast. He uses it for cutting U-Control or Control Line (CL) combat and stunt wings, but you can also use it to cut wings for Radio Control (R/C) and Free Flight (FF) models as well.
With this technique, you can make complete wings out of blocks of foam — including hollow core wings for lightness, and for running line lead-outs on your control line models.
In this video you’ll learn Bob’s entire method, including how to make your own inexpensive foam-cutting bow and where to find the right power pack for cutting.
You’ll even learn to core out previously cut solid core wings (like those in older kits such as the Sig Mustang stunter or Sig Kougar RC Sport Pattern model) to reduce weight and improve flying ability.
You’ll watch for yourself as Bob goes step-by-step through the process of cutting a foam wing. Even if you have little-to-no experience, you can get started cutting foam easily and inexpensively using these methods.
Here are some of the exciting and useful things you’ll learn:
Why the foam wing cutting tools you’ll make
in your shop are better than “pro” rigs
- How to make a simple, lightweight foam cutting bow using materials you’ll find at any hobby store.
- You can make your tools and cut your first wing for just a few dollars — instead of spending up to $200 to get a “pro” cutting rig that’s awkward to use. (Even if you currently use a “pro” cutting rig, once you know these techniques you’ll probably never go back!)
- Forget pulleys and counter-weights hung from the ceiling! Bob shows how one person can use this method to cut foam wings without a fuss.
- By the time you cut your first wing, you’ll save yourself the cost of these videos — cutting wings using Bob’s methods is more affordable than buying pre-cut wings or buying “pro” rigs. (And on the flying field, nobody will know until you tell them!)
The materials you’ll use for cutting your own
foam wings are affordable and easy to find
- Where to find foam locally that will give you perfect wings 99 out of 100 times. And learn what to look for to make sure this foam won’t give you any hassles!
- How to hold your templates in place while cutting the wings (and why).
- Where to find an affordable and safe power source for your foam wing cutter.
- Bonus topic — How to easily and affordably make a GREAT table for cutting foam and doing other big shop work.
- What material works best for templates, and how to fashion them so they make cutting foam even easier.
All the how-to methods you need for foam wing
cutting are in this short video
- Get the “leading edge sweep” and the “trailing edge sweep” — what to do differently to cut tapered wings vs. straight wings.
- What to line up and measure when preparing to cut a tapered wing.
- How to cut a template for coring a wing.
- Learn the “turned-ruler” technique for finding the center line of foam when it comes in odd thicknesses — you’ll instantly see how useful this is for all sorts of other shop work, too.
- What to double check BEFORE you start cutting.
- What to sand between cuts to make sure your cuts will be clean and smooth (hint — it’s NOT the foam).
- See an “oops” example of what happens when you don’t let the wire do the cutting.
- An easy homemade tool you can use to make sure your spar notches will fit your spars perfectly.
- Why you should only sand foam (for any project) in one direction.
- How to avoid unintended warps in your wings.
- Which glues to use so you can build your wing tonight and fly tomorrow — and why the wrong choice means you show up to the contest with a wing that looks fine but is not flight-ready.
- The surprisingly effective wing reinforcement you get at any office supply store.
- Shh, keep this secret! — A nontraditional material you can use to cover foam wings on combat planes and beginners’ models.
- A good excuse for playing with fire — how to make your first hole through your wing, so you can start cutting the core.
You won’t believe how simple it is to cut
your own foam wings (Most of it will have you
saying “Why didn’t I think of that!?”)
- It’s easy — unlike built-up wings, this method only requires you to make 2 ribs (they’re reusable, too).
- The easy way to hold your foam in place while cutting (this is a simple but effective use of a common household item).
- A simple technique for making smooth, even, clean cuts when two people cut a wing together.
- Reduce stress fractures and wing failures from regular flying — it’s hard to believe just how simple this little reinforcement is.
- The Macgyver technique you can use today for sanding the center holes on your coring templates. This makes them nice and smooth — a must for clean cuts!
Safety first — a simple warning
- Like much of what you do in your shop, some of this process can be dangerous if you’re not careful. Bob gives you instructions to ensure safety when you’re following his simple methods.
The video is modeler speaking to modeler
— the best way to learn
- This video is shot in the messy workshop of a modeler like you — not some fancy studio.
- None of the material will go over your head because Bob follows the KISS principle — “Keep it simple, stupid” — to make sure every minute of instruction makes sense and is useable, even if you’ve never cut foam before!
- There’s no need to complicate cutting foam wings, and Bob won’t.
- It’s not professional editing — but the content will help make you a pro at cutting foam wings! You could show off at your next contest or monthly modelers’ meeting.
- Only the humor is dry! Bob will make you chuckle as he gives you a reason to keep your old Playboys and beer cans in search of becoming a better modeler.
This 2-hour video is an A to Z introduction to Bob’s methods — you’ll learn enough not just to start cutting your own foam wings, but to have fun doing so.
Plus, you’ll save lots of money by using Bob’s methods — no fancy pro rigs are needed, you don’t have to pay someone else to pre-cut your wings, and you can reuse ARFs and other planes easily when crashes leave their wings busted but the rest of the plane intact.
We all know modelers are on a budget — and with the money you save using these techniques, you could easily build an extra plane this year, or pay the entry fees at a couple more contests!
BONUS: Bob has found a great source for heat-resistant template material. He has extra stock on hand. And he wants to share with you. While his supply lasts (to help you get started) Bob has agreed to throw in a samples of the heat-resistant material he uses to make templates from — so you don’t have to go chase it down yourself. (This applies to VHS orders only — because we haven’t figured out how to send it through the computer.) This will help you get started even quicker — order now to make sure you get yours!
Order now and you’ll soon be flying a good-looking set of wings you made!
