Today was the maiden flight of a project mastrsn and I have been working on for the last 3 months. The Mega Stick. It is physically twice as large as a regular slow stick with a 92" wingspan. With only about a 20' takeoff roll at less than half throttle she lifted gently into the air and circled the field gracefully and landed on three points. Here's a link to the build thread and pictures of the maiden flight.

This is the only double sized electric powered slow stick that I am aware of.
