Looking for FFF 3D design in 2S 450mah 28-33" span range

I have a few 2S 450mAH lipos and I just ordered a 2730 1500kv and 10A ESC from HK.

I want a 3D plane a bit more indoor slow flying than my FF Freestyle. I'm may just buy another airframe but since I have a stack of FFF, I figured I'd also consider scratch building.

Anyone have plans for a 3D ship in this size-range?

The Leadfeather Yak55 or Edge 540T would work well with that setup. For a full-fuse design, check out 3DMon's Lil Ripper. It's a REALLY fun flyer, and pretty easy to build. All these plans are available in this section. Good Luck.

Aren't all those designs EPP?

Nothing against EPP. I have two EPP planes and may add more down the road.

It's just that I'm looking for something I can make from FFF and cheap parts.

If had I had to order EPP, carbon rod, etc. I'd just drop $50 on another kit instead of going completely from scratch.

I could just draw something up but if I look at an exiting design for FFF, I'll get an idea of how much bracing and such is required.

Any plane you can make out of EPP, you can make out of FFF, I know I have. The only issues that might come up is getting it to balance right and the difference in foam thickness.

I'm pretty sure the Lil' Ripper is 5mm or 6mm Depron.

They're FOAM! LOL. All these designs have been built out of all kinds of foam. LF's planes were originally done in EPP, but they've been done in FFF, DTF (Dollar Tree Foam) Depron, and just about any other material that folks had on hand. The Lil' Ripper was originally in Depron, but it's been done in EPP, DTF, and FFF. 3Dmon (Shaun) actually has a sketchup version of the plans for FFF on the Phlatboyz forum. The only difference would be allowing for different thicknesses of the various foams when you cut out wing slots, alignment tabs, etc.
