Of the 2 dozen 1/2A RCM plans I ever ordered, only 1 looked light enough, small enough and fun enough for me to build.
The rest were cute looking, but they looked like they would be mediocre planes to fly.
Especially if the plans had foam involved.

Honkers fly pretty well in the single wing- Dad and I flew a couple and I actually have the last one he built in the garage with a cannon brick in it while they are not 3d capable they were fun, The bipe- I have never seen fly other than a youtube video... . As far as your statement about any plane involving foam not flying but mediocre... I used to build one of a kinds using the ace foam wings and had a blast with them powered by the .049 pissin off all the old foagies runnin low-fast and maneuvering 5-10 feet off the ground I can still hear the noise they make EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I scratched a Honker Racer (single wing version) with a Norvel .074. It's a good flier but won't really do outside maneuvers with the Jeldesky airfoil. I've thought about making the airfoil symmetrical to see what that would do.
