What type and size of plane are you looking for ? Are you willing to BUY plans or are you only looking for free ones ?

Chipnkim,
If your travels allow you to visit the Weld/Mt. Blue area one will find the Franklin County fliers a great resource.
I have been flying with a very experienced builder and flyer from Weld ME the last 10 years or so. WWII Vet who made it all the way to Berlin; more planes in his hanger than days in the year…

I would suspect you could find some great plans from the members (share) and fliers in that area.

You can find the Franklin County fliers on the AMA web site with contact data

Maybe we can fly together sometime?

Merry Christmas,
Dave

Plans sources:
Any of the US published model aircraft magazines:
AMA's house mag 'Model Aviation': http://www.modelaircraft.org/

Flying Models, a great magazine which covers all of aeromodelling, not just RC: http://www.flying-models.com/

'Radio Modeler' is now defunct, but its plans service continues: http://www.rcmplans.com/

'Fly RC' often has smaller models available free online: http://www.flyrc.com/

Naturally, there's rip-offs all over the web as a whole and E Bay, for a variety of costs.

Most magazines include some level of description as to what a model's designed for. Sounds like you need 'trainer' high on the shopping list, followed by a local club, AMA membership and finding yourself an instructor you get along with.

The alternative is teaching yourself to fly, in which case your 'instructor' will know precisely the same about flying RC as you do

Good luck, welcome aboard.
