Wanting to build myself a 3D foamie. Never flown 3d before

Hi everyone. I want to build a 3D foamie from scratch. I already have this motor with a 1750mAh 3s I want to base it on. Because I'm feeling poor it would be great if it was cheap. Already have spars and some misic hardware laying around. Enough hopefully to get it done for almost free

Anyway, would anyone be able to link me to some plans of a good beginner plane(s) that would be happy with the motor and batt I have?

What are the chances of me having a successful flight and a good flying plane? I have built a couple of scratch builds before so sorta know what I'm doing. I have also flown gliders, wings, and park flyers, but never had anything to do with 3D.

Thanks.

honestly the cheapest way would be to get the su-31 from nitroplanes, those fly great

or one of the 39" red eagle planes from valuehobby

making your own from scratch will be tough if you never flew or setup a 3D plane before, also that motor is a bit hot at 1400kv for a 3D plane, something 1000-1200kv is more typical, you want a large dia prop, not a small fast one
