Some info that has been supplied from one of the NMAS Members to help you get started
I would recommend as a first build the Bling Bling. Relatively easy to build and flies quite well.
The Morback is an interesting one, but difficult to build. I would not recommend as a first time build.

Tiled printable A4 Plans
I built one of these and got to understand what the leading edge top bits were. They were effectively, leading edge slats....
Index 2 - is different and relatively easy to build - leading edge is interesting. I built one and are using the wing on my current model
F3X are OK - just different.
Plans1 - F3X
Plans2 - F3X
My current plan is a combination of the good bits of these planes.
The side view of the fuzz is the bling bling, but lengthened by 65mm, just in front of the tailplane.
The fuzz top view is from the F3X, but lengthened by 65mm, just in front of the tailplane.
The wings are similar to the Index, but with extensions on the leading edges of the wing tips and
the Ailerons are same as the F3X.......
An interesting combo, but it flies well.
Technical details of my current planes are....
Index 2 - modified as per above - 65mm extension - 44.2 Hours are shown on transmitter !!!
Motor - AXI 2304 1000Kv,
Prop - 8 x 4.7 GWS ( or copy ), 9 x 3.8 APC or 9 x 4 work as well.
Batt - 2S 460 to 610 mAh,
ESC - 10 Amp,
Servos - HXT 9 (hobbyKing 9g ) Aileron, Elevator & Rudder.
Rudder is pull pull,
Elevator is 1mm carbon on (on top, so as to PULL the elevator......)
Aileron is a single servo with 1mm carbon rods to each Aileron. I do use an 'offset' horn to get 0 degrees of differential....
Motor is setup with NO right or down...
Motor, Front wing and Tail-plane are ALL on the same datum line..... ie EVERYTHING is 0 degrees
