nucc10, Dave is right about the cost.
I did a 53" ws IFO and it flew, but the thing warped or flapped in flight really bad.
I thought of adding control lines but the least little bit of wind would make the thing out of control as the surface area was large. Plus I would have one heck of a time getting it back to the runway to land.So if you go big make it stiff or you won't like how it flys. I'm use to the MKIII doing quick rolls and speed dives or just flat out aerobatics of the 3D kind.
So now I'm thinking of reducing the ws to salvage the airframe and covering.
