Help!

Depron trainer/Bi-plane plans?


Hey guys,
Been into my helis for about 9 months and want to try my hand at a plank.
I have servo's, Rx's, and a whole heap of associated odds and sods that I can use in building one.
I'm not a huge fan of profiles, but I should imagine that they are possibly the cheapest way in to fixed wing aircraft.
I'm looking for a cheap or freely available plan for a plane suitable for a learner.
I'm hoping I can just order some Depron up and cut myself a plane out of it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

n.b. I am a huge fan of Biplanes, anything suitable?

Heres one of my favorites, the Ultimate Bipe, and nice looking!
The plane are in EPP sheet but could be done in depron easily.

Here are two of my favorite bi/tri-plane foamy builds:

The DR1 is a tricky plane to fly, but it looks GREAT!

The SE5 is a breeze to fly, I followed these plans "loosely." Simplifying the build a bit.

My Depron DH-2 is slow, easy to fly and very manouverable ...
