    Plans - foam board / sturdy board 3D planes

    Hi, I am new here so please pardon my ignorance. This has probably been discussed before. But I am afraid my searching capabilities on this site are still developing. I am tired of searching with poor results, so will just pop out my question.

    Where can I find downloadable plans of indoor 3D planes? I currently have a shockflyer that is performing very well, but is getting banged up a little. We are flying in a small gym - it is an accepted fact that the planes have a limited lifespan in this application. I traced the shocky before I built it so could do that. But I was hoping to find some other options to consider before I get to it.

    The shockflyer is made out of depron. I have some nice big sheets of 3/16 foam board. Light and very strong. Can I use that instead of the foam?


    Thanks!

    Lowes or Home Depot sells Fan Fold Foam. It is blue foam 5/15 x 24 x 48. You get around 24 sheets for $30, enough for a whole winter up there. The 3D plans work great in this stuff.

    I thought that at one time that we wern't suppose to use blue foam. Something about it being toxic. But maybe that was only if you cut it with a hot wire or burn it.

    I use both hot wire and Xacto. If you are worried about the fumes, use a knife.
