Check out the Ezone at rcgroups.com. They have a bunch you can down load for free. They are in a PDF format and are tiled so all you have to do is tape all of the pieces together for the plans.

Dru.

P.S to many to list here or to give links. Another place is foamyfactory.com

I've drawn up a set of plans for this little beauty...its an Ace 3D plane and totally pure in Knife edge.

I fly it on a Hacker B20 26L and a 3s3p pack of 340's on a 12x6.
This is a soft set up....The last one has a Hacker B20 15L same pack on a 10x4.7....also very good.

The fuz is just 1" wall insulation polystyrene edged with 3/32 blasa.

The wing is very simple and quick to build.....I'm finding a sectioned wing is worth it compared to flat sheet,
it just flies so much better. The model weighs 15ozs ready to fly - and it flies absoloutly superb!

A friend has done a lot of experimenting with smaller depron sheet models, he's found an intersting aileron design that
gives a much faster roll rate at low speed. The design flies on a cheap GWS twin motor and 3x340's li-po's.
Its the most agile foamie I've seen yet. hopefully plans coming soon.
