It's not too often that I take the time and effort to go through a series of presentations like this, but I have gone through all of the articles and have found that it is is a very constructive and educational series of presentations. For a seventeen year old, he has put together a wonderful presentation on a wide variety of topics which are not only of high value of newcomers, but has much information that we old-timers can appreciate.
I urge everyone to go through this series of articles and can guarantee that you will come away with a new appreciation of scratch building. I'm so impressed that I an considering building his design.
Please take the time to go through the various articles and I am sure that you will appreciate what the up-and-coming modellers can teach us.

Glad you found it as informative as I did, John.

Here is the link to download the plans in PDF format.

A great entry level plane. Uses dollar store paper faced foam, 3s2200 LiPo, a 28-36 motor, and any 4 channel radio.

The parts list is a link on the first page part way down in the middle text
