No plans needed for this one, just refer to this video and the relevant videos on the fuselage tube, wing, and tail section. PARTS LIST BELOW:

The Axon is made of Dollar Tree foamboard (Readi-Board) using the simple construction techniques described on this channel. Four sheets of foamboard plus hot glue, packing tape, plastic gift cards, four 9 gram servos, and flight electronics are all that are needed to build this plane.

The motor mount 5 degree thrustline adjustment is to ensure the thrust force approximately intersects the aerodynamic center of the aircraft. This is very roughly at the mid-chord of the wing. The angled thrust avoids pitching forward and down upon adding power.

Below is a sample parts list as bought from HobbyKing. There are other good sources and many variations of these parts, so use your judgment and ask questions as needed.
