Can you help me build a larger foamy 3D plane

Hello gents, i was wondering if you's might be able to take the time in helping me build a larger 3D foamy plane, im after something that will allow me to do basically all 3D manovers, but not cost a fortune, i was about to pruchase a UMX Extra 300 but at $170 BNF i was not willing to pay for that for something so small and tacky, i would love to build a YAK55 or something similar, the planes from twisted hobby are fantastic looking planes but a bit too pricey also the fact im in australia it would cost another $60 ontop to ship it over, so what i have is a spektrum DX6i no reciever, and am looking for a frame and all the parts needed to build and fly it, i really have no clue what im after, what will be a good choice, what will work, so im basically asking if anyone can take the time to help me put together a list of every item i need preferable from the same shop but not fussed and dont care if its overseas that i can use to start purchasing everything i need, im wanting to keep the cost not to extreme as i go to college so funds arnt exactly flowing, plane size something similar to the size of the yak55 from twisted

keithy351,

Here is the info you need to build a 42" Yak 55, one of the best flyers out there. Find a source of foam down there in the "land down under" and build away. The site also gives you motor size, Esc size etc.

I know there are a lot of your fellow country men on this site, maybe one can let you know where to look for foam.

Regards,

Hankg

Here you go, the GRX thread by Get Real. Great plans and ideas for building with Ownes Pink foam and other common materials. Great plane designs too.

(Can't go wrong with the Leadfeather Yak either)
