So this model slows down quite well already at the current size, I think. But it'll be even easier to fly at double the size.

Great double scale it'll be. As I said I already have the templates printed. I will start on it as soon as I finish the two I am working on now (maybe before ). I can't seem to get one finished before I find another to build at this rate I will never learn to fly them. I will have a huge hanger before I learn to fly.
