6mm depron for 24" Parkflyer Pete??

Ive searched everywhere for the tiled A4 plans for a park flyer Pete but all I could find was tiled plans that were in US legal format. I dont have that paper so when I print it out part of it is cut off so I had to reuce the images by arond 85% to fit on A4.
It's made the wing span around 20" but I added 2 inches to that.

Can I make this plane with 6mm depron both the fuse and wing? I stumbled across another post where a 20" version of this plane was made and the 6mm depron was too thick for a wing. I do have 3mm depron but am worried it would be too flimsy for this.
Would appreciate some suggestions here.

Truman , we've even done a Mini Pete @ 17" WS... It flew much faster than the 36" one.. not nearly as Floaty ... 6mm should be just fine !!! Maybe somebody here could make a tiled set of plans for A4... or you could just do as I do and freehand in the missing bits on the larger version ...

GPW, Thanks for the reply. Ive spent hours reading through the Parkflyer Pete threads 1 2 and 3, still going though them all but have learnt heaps from you and Gene and other talented people on here.
I didnt mind that I had to reduce it down to fit A4 as I wanted something a bit smaller anyway.

I want my 9 yr old son to be able to just throw it and fly it.

Ive ended up with a 22" fuse and a 28" WS. Do you think this will be okay? I have this motor and was thinking of putting it on this plane.


Not sure what prop to use though, any suggestions?

Thanks once again.
