Ace R./C Mini Foam Wing Plans - Airplanes and Rockets

Andy Kunz has a free plan on the OuterZone website.

Up until sometime in the early 2000s, Ace R/C manufactured a very popular set of injection molded foam wings for ½A size models - the Ace R/C Mini Foam Wing. There was a constant chord and a tapered chord version. Up until fairly recently, a third-party firm was selling equivalent foam wing panels eBay. Of course you can often buy original Ace R/C Mini Foam Wings on eBay so you might want to check periodically to see if they appear. Laser Design Service and Balsa Builder both offer a balsa built-up version of the foam wing. Andy Kunz has a free plan for cutting and building your own Ace tapered chord mini foam wing replica.

Owen Kampen and others designed and kitted many ½A airplanes using his Mini Foam Wing cores. Notable examples are the All Star biplane (actually for .15 engine), the Pacer aerobatic plane, the Whizard sport flyer, Dick's Dream (.020 engine), the Simple Citabria and Simple Duster, and the Ace High glider.
