That's a great flyer looks fast too. Do you have plans for it? How to start building?

long thread and 4 differant size plans in thread, 50% , 70% reg,200% are there, i built the regular size

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?p=10526308#post10526308

best is use http://www.dollartree.com/teachers-supplies/teaching-aids/Readi-Board-Foam-Boards/208c306c306p16450/index.pro?method=search for a dollar a sheet, you will need 3, 2 can be used but get more is alwas better for repairs and what have you

also to remove the paper off foam get a bottle or 2 of AWESOME cleaners
http://www.dollartree.com/cleaning-storage-hardware/all-purpose-cleaners/20-oz-Totally-Awesome-Cleaner/212c254c254p8056/index.pro?method=search

after cut your pieces, go bathtub and spray the cuts with it and when you go back to 1st spray piece slowlly pull backing off both sides

also i use Gorrila glue the one that say "Dry white, 2x faster" bottle, not the brownish one, make sure you wet opposite side of joint for better foaming action of glue

to paint, i use colored packing tape from dollar stores

also, make sure you make some sort of air scoops for air to enter fuselage or esc and battery will get hot and shut off, happen to me few times tilll i make some scoops with a cut off plastic spoon for enterance and exit
