There is a free flight forum at the bottom of the list. It is a trial forum but you still might get good response if you don't get any here.

Spy,
You could build a nice flying wing or a simple chuck glider for starters.

Sounds right, follow the designs of the dimestore gliders, Guillows et al. Use a balsa fuselage, learn to trim, and have fun. Stay on this site and use your archives or search to learn at a faster rate!

Or use the plans for a profile or "no-cal" model and cut the wing and fuselage from your foam instead of from sheet balsa or stick and tissue construction.
