AXN Pusher Jet Plans

Was hoping to find some plans similar the HK's AXN Floater-Jet. Ran a search with out any success. Does anybody have any ideas, or has seen anything similar?

Thanks in advance.

Check this out. The Axon (one of the more recent in his series of videos) is a pusher style, larger wing span (60"). Although not exactly like the AXN, it's a start...

Are there any monoblock-type fuselage pusher plane plans to build out of polystyrene insulation foam (the blue kind from lowes)?

its only 12-14 bucks for a 4' by 8' sheet at 1/2" thick. I was thinking of layering the cut outs from the sheet to make my fuselage. i plan to build a plane slightly larger than the XEN Skywalker (bigger fuselage and 2m wingspan), and will FPV with it.

any pointers are much appreciated. this will by my first foam build.

Check out the Nova at MyGeekShow.com. He has a complete construction guide, and plans, as well as several videos showing construction and setup. It's close to your 2m wingspan as well. He uses 3/4" foam instead of 1/2", but I'm sure you could adapt the plans to 1/2"if you need to.
