If a beginner wanted to cut foam and build a plane, what is the simplest design he should go for ?

Printable plans would be greatly appreciated.

my first plane is this "super slow 28" very very easy to build. it took me just 2 days to finish it. the material i used is coro (ad board- got of them from electrical posts) i just love this material, as it wont break what ever u do, but it will bend. to avoid this bending, i inserted several satay sticks ( round bamboo sticks, roughly 4mm dia and 10" length) inside the flutes. it is very strong and cheap( each cost 1Re only). my config is 1200kv 40 gram motor, gws 8040 prop, 3s 1000mah and 3 servos. goes unlimited vertical and 3d. attached the link of the tiled plane, pic of my plane and a very short video(my first flight... very rough flying. anyways cant believe my eyes Cheesy, cant express my feeling by words Lips Sealed) wonderful hobby Clap just loving it... all the best

Foamy Slowstick would be an Ideal beginner Plane. may be it high speed current or no air she flies well,
she flies so slow that u can actually walk before her.

SlowStick [44"wingspan].
1/4th wooden fuselage
2mini 9gm servo
towerpro 18T outrunner motor
25amp mag esc
castle micro stamp 4~9 gm esc
2200 Hxt 20C battery
futaba tx skysport

Since I Know I am under begginer then too I this plane survived many crashes.
 
My foamy Slowfly28 sctrach build is ready, if weather permits me in Bombay they I will try to maiden this weekend then I can put reviews of Slowfly.

"Foamy Slowstick" - Is that the regular ARF that can be bought all over the place, or something you built ?  Smiley

Please post some pictures if it is built by you.  Also, the wooden fuse is interesting.

The simplest ever for noobs can be 'THE NUTBALL' if you are not specific about the shape. It has only 3 pieces of foam!

I had built a blue baby with a friend some time back, just some pointers, you might not get everything right the first time so if you are in no mood to see your first plane go down to a silly mistake try the snowball.

very little things to go wrong, I know its an ugly looking plate. If you are making the blue baby anyways, DONT just glue the dihedral wings in place i.e. dont connect the two pieces of wing using only glue, use a stick to hold them in place, this was the mistake I made and as soon as I hand launched the plane, it went a little far and the wings just folded upwards leading to a terrible crash.

thanx bro, will keep that in mind.


as far as snowball is concerned, i like it but its much less to build, actually i like building a bit more than flying for now Cheesy (as no experience in flying Tongue)
i think i'll add snowball too in my list.
i'll be constructing all 3 before flying (3dx, blu baby and snowball)

and p.s. according to above list, will try flying them in reverse order)

On the snowball instead of adding foam floats you can experiment with empty (duh) 500 ml plastic bottles. The foam floats will be fragile for your first few rough landings.
