I don't know about India. But here a lot of us collect some of the election candidate coroplast signs right after an election. The other source is to look for a sign making business and purchase some coroplast sheets from them. For the fuselage I tend to use aluminum angle stock or channel or spare tubing. But one could use wood for it too. Maybe someone from India will notice this and respond with better answers for you.

You say you're a beginner to electric planes, but have you flown anything else radio controlled prior to this?

I can help you. Just let me know the place in India you are from. We have coroplast shops that sell the sheets of different thickness. If you want to build electric planes, 2mm coro will help.

Under the tab for "Trainers" does anything look good to you?
Though these are gas-powered, they can be easily adapted to fly with electric power.

Check out Sassy's Rudder Rail on the Spads on Rails menu.
