Foam Board R/C Airplane

This plane was built using Dollar Tree Foam board. The wing is an “ARMIN WING”. You can find directions on how to build ths type of RC airplanes at “experimental airlines” on YouTube.

The ARMIN wing design gives you a true flat bottomed airfoil. Very easy to build.

A technique I saw done with grey Depron ended with an under-cambered wing. I would like to see if I can adapt this to the ARMIN wing design. It would be great for high lift slow speed designs in foam board aircraft. It will probably take some taping on the inside as well as some paper stripped on the outside.
