If it's in the 80" or 85" range and anywhere from 14 to 20 pounds it's going to fly great. Modern EDF stuff will fly it fine.

When looking at the T-38 wing area, fuselage lift can be as much as 40% of total lift.

A high power 4500 watt 90mm setup would be pretty sweet on an 80 something inch long 17 pound T-38.

Guys are flying the 98" Skymaster T-38 at 32 pounds and say it fly's beautiful and lands really nice.
Transportation with a 70ish sized plane would be quick and easy....85" we're getting into another vehicle unless there was a way of detaching the nose etc...
