Magnum Reloaded


I saw this plane on one of the threads ( not a build thread, just some pics at a fly in) and think it's a great plane to try for my first scratchbuild. I found some plans and some pictures here and there, but I am sure someone has a thread on here about it. Does anyone know where one might be?
I am looking for motor and servo advice, what type(s) of foam to use, etcetera.
Thanks gang.

Kind of looks like EPP foam. I'm sure someone here can point you in the right direction on the model. That Barbie head in the 3rd plane is funny.

Yes, I messed up on the search. I was not logged in and was looking for the search, which I was sure was on here somewhere, and when I logged back in Friday night, there it was. Dooooop!
Thanks for the help so far everybody. I had found the German and Japanese sites, but I need some info in English. I wonder if someone has a thread in waterplanes?
I want to start cutting foam, but am a little warry until I get some better info.

That's cool. I just thought he was making a joke.
I know how to ask for a beer and a few nicities, but specs are hard enough for Japanese to get right, much less myself. I work with them every day.
Now the German, that's another thing.....I can count to ten and ,,,,,well, thats about it.
Keep the info coming guys, I plan to start cutting foam this week. Pics to come.

That's good info, I appreciate it a lot. I have some of those parts, so I think maybe I can start. Does your's have ailerons? Most I have found pics of do not.
How about some pics of yours?

I will have to get some pics for you all I have now is that video.
The plane does great with just rudded and elevator like most polyhedral wings.
It is nice and slow and stable and looks cool.
