Question Biplane from Dollar Tree Foam?

Are there any build pictures, plans, etc for building a biplane out of Dollar Tree foam? I have thought about making a biplane out of the "NOOB" from Experimental Airlines but I need plans for measurements and the like. Does anyone have plans for a simple foam biplane? Thanx so much!!

Take a look at Flite Test. Their early plans were for Dollar Tree foam but now sell their own brand.

The Baby Blender has been popular for quite some time. https://store.flitetest.com/flite-te...t-1003/p673667

Another option is Outerzone.com. Their plans are not for foam board but you could use the outlines, incidences, etc, as starting points for your own design. The Dakota might be a good starting point as it is a cabin job with sheet based wings. https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=7191

Good luck, and keep us posted on your

and more ...

Its actually not hard to take a 3 view or a standard full form plan and convert to a flat foam sheet model. All you need are the outline dimensions and then carefully add tabs to any that need separating and then later joined : ie fuselage sides.

There are hundreds of plans online to download free ... just a simple Google "Free foam biplane model plans" for example ...
