EPO foam (Expanded Poly Olefin) is known by many trade names. For example Parkzone's Z Foam and the Multiplex's Elapor models.
EPO is notorious for being difficult to get a good glued joint. From our own experience we did not find 5 minute epoxy the best type of glue for EPO and we recommend Bob Smiths Super Gold or Gold Cyno or Multiplex Zacki adhesive. Slower types of Epoxy can also work if the surfaces being glued are roughhed up to help the glue 'key' the joint. Many standard forms of Cyno adhesives can also be used, but we always advise testing unknown glues on scrap foam before committing them to use.
The Handyman is proving to be so popular with model flying clubs and modellers in general. It has been found to be ideal model for Club Aerobatic events or 'One Model' events. We here at SWM/ServoShop are committed to supporting and promoting this hobby as much as we possibly can and so we are making available a Club Deal rate of £49.99 per Handyman kit when purchased in fives or over. Not only is the model discounted further, but carriage will also be more economic as you hit the FREE carriage band (in the U.K).
We are offering a similar type of deal on the Sunrise models
