    All about timing I guess. Built mine from these two plans. Flys pretty good for a bucks worth of foam board
    These are not my plans, blaumph2cool is the one I used to make the airframe. Want to give credit where credit is due.

    I just printed it out on 8.5x11 and just drew it out on the foam. No mixing for me. I use elevator and move the rudder to ailerons so the controls on the same stick.

    From RC Groups:

    The plane is cut from a single sheet of foamboard which is 20 inches by 30 inches

    The plane is 24.5 inches long and that is your back line.
    the front is 7inches wide.
    Make a mark 11 inches up each side and make a triangle.
    make a mark 22 inches up from the side and connect that to your 24.5 inch line.
    The prop slot is 8.5 inches up from the front and is 8.5 x 1.25 in size.
    make a small cut out for your motor.
    The elevator is 15 inches wide and set back 2.25 inches on the sides.
    The back of the plane will be pointed so make a straight line across the back to get the small fins.
    the rudder is 14.5 inches long and 5.5 inches tall.
    when you cut the rudder, the piece that comes off to clear the elevator gets glued to the top of the rudder.
    The small amount of foam left I use to make a 2.5 inch doubler for the front of the plane and some side mounts for the stick mount.
    The wing tips are cut and glued at a 45 degree angle.
    Use some packing tape on the front.

    2-9 gram china servos
    1 blue wonder 1500
    10 amp esc
    spectrum reciever
    500 to 900 mah 3 cell
    stick mount

    Ask them for it. I went to the local $ store here and asked them to get me a box of foam. I picked up a full box of 50 sheets not too long ago. They took my number and called me when it came in to go and get it.

    JMD, here's my copy of your old CNE, using the same motor with tractor drive. Only crashed once so far, but you can't tell it. :) Thanks for your help!
