ok cool... how many sheets of foam does it use.... i'm guessing 2 or 3
You can fit it on two sheets if you attatch them together on the long side. I used one sheet of maker foam (30x40) and I was able to fit all the parts on it. However, if you are cutting it out of 20x30 sheets it'll use three.

aaah i meant rudder.. elevator.. and throttle for 3 ch.
It should work as a 3 channel RET if you add enough dihedral, but I would recommend making it a AET and if you need, you could use one servo on the ailerons. I did it on one of mine and it worked well, but you have to route your rubberbands underneath the pushrods if you mount the servo to the top of the wing.
 
Question:
Can I fly this on a B pack with no thrust angle? I didn't see any on the plans, and the forum search function didn't turn up anything relevant.
