    wow that sounds great, and thank you so much for what you are doing for the community,
    I would also like to add thank you for the good quality "how to design DTFB airplanes" videos and inspiring me to get into designing a few of my own planes with some success.

    Update on the sample boards Adams sent me

    OLD | 0525
    CURRENT | 0524
    SAMPLE | no sku yet

    I ran through all the same tests, strength, humidity, cutting, etc. Overall the sample boards are a huge improvement over 0524! The main negative is that it's still brittle when compared to 0525. I don't have a confirmation on ship date yet, but Adams should be updating to the new paper soon. I have asked them to update the SKU so that we can tell which boards are which on the store shelves.

    Positive
    - The sample boards cut much nicer than the 0524 so I am very happy about this!!
    - Paper comes off in solid sections like 0525
    - Humidity has little effect on the sample boards

    Negative
    - Strength testing seems in line with 0524, which is weaker than 0525 by about 10%
    - Durability is like 0524, more brittle than 0525

    Neutral
    - Weight is a little heavier than 0525, but not by much

    That's good news Nic, also shows that Adams cares about it's products. I don't care what anyone else said, going direct to adam's was the way to go. Is this the end product they will produce or is it just experimental?
