Excellent plane crashin! Super Kool Indeed!
I print and tape the plan together. I make as many as I will need. If I need two parts for a plane then I print two plan parts.
I ruff cut around the parts to be cut so I can handle them better.
I tape the plan parts to the foam so they will not move.
I tape every few inches. I will cut the ailerons before lifting the plan off the foam.
I mark the center of the wing etc. for later reference when gluing the parts together. This saves a lot of time later.
This shows the cutting line. You can mark this before cutting if it helps. It's like connecting the dots. I have done this enough that I don't need to mark it.
This is the magic part! I cut through the plan and the foam at the same time. Be sure to use a new blade.
This shows how I cut on each side of the plan line at the end of the ailerons for clearance. I do this before I remove the wing from the foam.
I remove the wing and bevel the ailerons and wing. Then I place it back in the foam cut out to hold it while I apply the tape hinge.
Here is the finished foam part. Only took minutes.
I cut out all the parts and tape the hinges on before starting assembly. Here the parts are just put together, nothing glued.
I glued one side with the bulkheads. Then I made the mount for the servos. Easy to do at this point in the build.
The space in the lower/front of the servos will be the receiver compartment
I ran the linkage tubes through the bulkheads and installed the push rods. I hooked up the elevator control horn.
Bottom view shows the CF rod through it for better support. Credit card control horns "full size plans" on page one.
I glued the other side in-place.
I cut a slot for the rudder control tube.
I glued the top rear of the fuselage.
I built a cover box for the servos. The tab on the front bottom is the depth of the receiver compartment. Glue same size tab at front and half way on sides.
Earth magnets are hid in the wood stop support. The 3/16" thick black wood windshield holds the front of the wing.
I glued broken pieces of a single edge razor blade for the magnets to hold.
The thin wood ply side windows are glued to the windshield for max support. Notice everything slants forward. Windows, LG, fuselage, rudder, etc. I love the look!
3/32" plywood tab goes under the windshield and the center bolt will sandwitch the wing carbon fiber rod.
The carbon fiber rod fits in the slot. Notice the wing block is recessed 3/32" down from the top of the fuselage so the wing tab will fit.
Center Wing carbon fiber rod goes through the wing tab 3/32" plywood. Note - the wood tab goes from the front of the wing to the back of the wing block.
Front Wing flat carbon fiber on the Leading Edge.
I installed the receiver compart- ment top (or cockpit floor) but DO NOT GLUE so it can be removed. Hole is for the aleron servo lead and helps for removal.
I had to cut and hinge the floor (about half way) to get it installed.
The landing gear block is 1/4" plywood with blind nuts. Notice the wood on the sides of the fuselage and how far back the block goes. This helps spread the impact energy when landing.
Thin plywood piece glued on the bottom of the fuselage to protect the foam bottom. Both the inside block and this plywood piece is approx 2 1/2" sq.
Tail wheel glued to foam like version one.
I encased the magnets inside the wood.
Optional - I installed springs on the landing gear for shock absorbers. I can adjust the stiffness by adjusting the screws. Glue a stop behind the LG as on version one.
Steerable tailwheel. I wish I had done this with mine! I will with the next one.
Found on the internet

Fold the credit card 90 degrees.
Cut opening for the servo and fold the cut out back flat for more glue area or cut off to make it a little lighter.
Cut back at the fold, then fold up the wind shield/deflector. This is the leading edge. Trim the vertical part.
Finished!!!! Screw or hot glue the servo in place, sand bottom of plastic then glue or servo tape to the plane, or drill holes and bolt to the plane. Enjoy!!!
heres the top view looks good so far i have an carbon arrow in the wing and went with the kfm 4 airfoil
i have the wing and tail held on with rubber bands so if you wanted to put the cannopy on bottom look like a gas tank and wing on top
the electronics bay
my changed tail
