  • Flat Foam Tires?

    Hey guys, if you leave your plane sitting on the foam tires for a while, you will get a flat spot. (that why we usually use stands)
    I had this happen with my FW F4 Phantom.
    Does anyone have any ideas for how to return the foam tire to its normal shape? Nothing I have tried has helped.

    No idea, but I use foam under the wheels when storing and no flat spots.

      I saw a video showing a guy getting dents out of EPO using hot water. He said around 150-160F but do not boil. Maybe you could try that ???He heats it up and works the shape back
