I too wish it would have been bigger, but as AEJR pointed out, it may be impossible to do 3 meters in foam. Just not firm enough.

Also Horizon, what were your goals in designing this plane as opposed to the Radian? Better thermaling? Fly in higher winds? Sloping?
"Just not firm enough" I'll 2nd that. Mine flaps her wings like a demented eagle at the slope with a good blow. I must confess I haven't taken her sloping since I moved onto the Fox and Wildthing though she still gets a look in on flat field days

I can't see them making the wings fit the existing fuse, wouldn't make good business sense now would it, but I bet that mod will follow, Oh Yes!!!
