Sean, you said in the beginning that the best size, in terms of performance etc, is to go for a 1320mm span. by what factor do you need to increase the original A4 plans? i have just realised that my span is 44.8 inches, as per the original plan! how do i ask the print shop to enlarge it so that my span will be 1320mm? also, how much of a difference will this increase in size make on the flight characteristics?

awesome thread, and impressive blog, once again!
take the file to a print shop and have them incease the plan by 16% this gives a span of approx 1330mm
