Help!
Mini 3D Foamie

I am looking for plans to a 3D foamy that is under 24'' (wingspan). I want it to be small enough to fly in my street. I will be us in a Turnigy D822/17 and 15A esc.
Also does anyone have plans for making a plane out of foam board?

Please show me all you have got!


Thanks,
Zac

I believe your motor and esc are a little on the heavy side for these models though. If you can swing it i definitely suggest getting another motor/esc combo that would better match the planes.
The turnigy is 38g while the motors twisted recommend are only 12-14g.

Heyup Zac, what you need mucca is a 'Lounge', uses 5g servos on ele and rudder, needs a 9g servo on ailerons (a bluebird BMS DB308 even better weighing 6g). Plans:-

Just check out the scratchbuilt foamies forum, tons of info and plans there. If your just starting out or are relatively new, stick with EPP foam designs for durability.
