"Crash-proof 3D foam RC plane" by hammydude12345

OK, it's not a build I've done yet, but I found this on YouTube. As is my habit whenever I run across an interesting plane I make AutoCAD drawings if none are available. I know no plane is fully crash-proof, but I loved the simplicity of this one, and I think it is probably quite a bit more crash tolerant than many others out there. It incorporates some good ideas. I will be building one some time soon, for sure. It's so straightforward it should be a quick build and looks like it flies well.

Hammydude12345 hasn't found his way to RC Groups yet, but I've encouraged him to do so. He confirmed that the drawings are accurate and asked me to post them. I hope you don't mind this indirect method, but I thought you might like to see this plane.
