I see that generally in the show styrofoam planes are used they are light.

well, for one the bigger you get, the more expensive electronics are. plus, light foams are more likely to bounce in a crash than balsa. Flite Test is based pretty much on getting beginners into the hobby, so many of their aircraft are cheap to build, so in the event of a crash they can be rebuilt quickly and easily.
