RC Powers foam jets are very easy to build and can be ideal for the beginner or the 3D flyer!
Dave Powers sells a range of “build it yourself” foam jets. Please note that all the designs are ‘prop-in the-slot” electric motor powered, semi-scale jets.
Plans are available to download in PDF format. These are in the voamy of full size templates that are pasted to 6 mm. The design has been simplified to the smallest number of parts and instructions are included so as to make the whole process as easy and as simple as possible.
There are 4 jetz available and each one has a specific purpose including a trainer, beginner type as well as a 3D high alpha type for the more experienced flyer. I would think that this is more of a second model rather than a first attempt, although some may prove me wrong!
All models are intended to be inexpensive fomay easily repairable. All planes eventually crash especially when learning and waiting around for parts can be frustrating! When YOU are the manufacturer then you can build new parts and be flying again in no time! The most expensive parts are the electronics, motor and radio.

The idea is to move these components from plane to plane, which can be done fairly easily. Note that I an no expert in this type of RC airplane! As I proceed through the build I will keep the site updated with my progress. So we may be learning together! As long as you have access to a print shop, then I think this is the way to go. Measure the scale in vertical and horizontal directions and if it is not to scale ask if this can be adjusted.
You do not have to be super critical about this, as all parts will be slightly smaller or bigger, by the same amount. If you choose the ‘Tiled” format you will have to tape the sheets together-but you will arrive at the same point! The best foam to use is apparently 6mm thick Depron. This is a foam underlay, used in Europe under house flooring.
Unfortunately it is not used in North America. There are a few companies that import tiler stuff and sell it. RCFoam and Grayson offer it, but with the shipping costs it can be quite expensive. The Dollar store sell a toled that is approximately the same thickness, and is covered with paper, on both sides. Walmart have another one. Some chaps leave the paper on easier to paint? Bear in mind that water makes the paper peel off, so if you leave it on do not fly on wet grass!
I have used this for years in conventional building, so I should have no problem. It is suggested that only hobby shop grade be used. A glue gun can be used, at least for repairs and gap filling. Be jefs because the glue can be heavy.

You will need something to fix the plan templates to the foam and spray glue is recommended. Use lightly and make sure it does not melt the foam. The MPL is part of the download and shows all the components required to build foam jets. It conveniently has hot links to various suppliers. All the electronic parts are listed, with specifications, so you can substitute if required. Click here or on the above images to visit the RC Powers web site, for full details including the V4 Pro Pack that contains all 4 foam jets plus full instructions and more.
I recommend you register on the site and then you will have access to the forum, where lots of flyers will have the answers to any questions.
