1 inch thick blue foam


I want to build my first rc plane. But I only have 1 inch thick blue foam. What planes could I build with it without cutting the foam thinner?

A "simple delta", with a carbon fiber or wood dowel spar and beveled leading edge would work out just fine. The delta layout is "naturally" very strong and has low wing loading because of the tons of wing area.
Search on this site for "simple delta" - there are many variations on this theme.
