Anyone have or know were to find f-4 plans? Id like to build a f-4 but don't have plans. I would like to make my own plans but i'm not sure were to start with that either. Can I use a 3D program such as Blender? and somehow transfer that to a 2d layout? Let me know I have basic modeling skills in Blender but I know a guy who makes really good Airplanes.

Two sets of F4 plans at parkjet.com, one looks like a full scale, the other more of a profile. You do have to pay to download, a week's membership is $5.00 but I think you can then download a lot of plans during that time.

I built the profile one which struggled getting enough air to the prop and had to install cheater intake ducks,also I think Bobdabuilda has plans for an F-4.

Check out this one from a guy, Ben Harber, on the Flite Test forums: https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/f-4-phantom-twin-70mm-edf-monster.37592/ And the maiden flight of it:

So, does this mean it didn't need any flaps/air brakes to slow it down when landing?

No flaps needed for my bird. She flew quite sluggishly. Definitely not a speed demon.

Not getting enough air to the prop.
The "5EZP" F-4 has dorsal intakes and the prop is centered in the wing.
Here is her first recoded flight.
