Simple Delta Wing RC Combat Foamie

Hello all, just recently getting into anything airplane related, and only have gotten into helicopters since spring of this year. I was lucky enough to meet a now good friend at a local hobby shop who introduced me to the plans for this simple flyer that is primarily used for combat, but thus far has worked well for me to just sort of learn airplane orientation and flight for relatively cheap.

So, just figured I'd share the experience, an article with plans and a video of the construction, the first of the series whereas the second and third will be final touches and then flight itself.

Take care, all!
