Where can I find plans for dollar tree foam plane? Free is preferred, but I am willing to purchase plans.

DTF and other forms such as Deoron etc. can all be used on same plans. You may have to modify a creased fold or something - but plan and material are not exclusive to each other.

Just Google free plans. There's Hippocketaeronautics, Outerzone, Flite-Test, many sites out there and most are free.

Flite Test is a pretty good place to start, as their planes are specifically built from Dollar Tree foam, and most of their planes have build videos available.

Default Slow Stick by Chellie

If you search old threads you can find Chellie (super contributor), she had a very instructive and informative plan that really shows the technique for working with the Dollar Tree foam. It was some years back, but I gleaned a ton of data from the posts on this plane and went on to design and built a multitude of planes based on this technology. I totally enjoy flying my latest slow stick foamy, a five channel beasty with way too much power, semi symetrical foam wing. It is my plan to build a 3D slow stick out of this stuff when I have time. Good luck.
