Here's a good size comparison. I'm 71 inches tall if I stand up straight (for you, Mom). Thanks to Tom Wagner for the photo.

With those very tapered wings Gary, how do you avoid tip stalling, especially when making low, slow turns indoors?

I'm guessing lots of washout, differential and a very low wing loading.

Lovely work!

No washout, some differential, and low wing loading.

I saw the C-47 and the Spacewalker fly in Texas last year and I was so impressed! We left the event and on the 5 hour drive home all we could talk about was building giant indoor foamies. Awesome airplane.
