Newbie - Slow flying A3 foam?

Hello everyone

I've crashed a number of expensive planes around the world, but never successfully flown one :ROFLMAO: I kept all the electronics though!
Through work I have access to practically free ISO A3 5mm foam board, and I have an A4 sized printer. I can't work out how to actually build a decent slow-flyer, that's newbie friendly, using A3 board and A4 sized prints.

Can anyone point me in the right direction at all? I've been reading about Sundown57's build, but it seems to be for large board only!

A3 size print measures 29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches
I have the plans for the Flite Test Explorer here and the biggest 2 parts (wing sections and fusalage) should both fit on that.

your PDF reader should be able to do a tiled print, so you can just grab the full size plans and have it tile them (or if the already tiled plans print on A3, use that).
