I've been flying RC for about 10 years with all kinds of planes and have competed in classic pattern for the last 4 years. So I know my way around an airplane. But I'm new to this foamboard building so I'm hoping to get some advice from some of you. I've been asked to run an aeromodeling club for 7th and 8th graders at the school where I work. There will be around 20 of them, and I plan to start them off with simple balsa gliders during this semester and working on the simulator in anticipation for building and flying some foam planes in the spring. I'm thing a profile type fuselage and flat board wing, maybe with some dihedral and a lot of wing area to keep things slow and trainer like. I'll be buddy boxing the kids so there is no worry about safety, but I'd like them to have planes that are docile enough that they can do most of the flying. I'd like to keep the wingspan under a meter and the RTF weight under a pound if possible. A simple build would be great too. So do you guys have a recommendation for me?
