how does this sound to you guys?

well, i usually stick to micro planes... but, i have decided to scratchbuild meself a scale foamie. i am making a se5 biplane, with plans from www.theplanpage.com made to double the size. so, i am building a huge, nastily large plane- around 32 inches.

so far, i have the fuse done. it is 20.5 inches long, 3.75 inches tall, and 2 inches wide. it weighs a bit over an ounce- is that a decent weight? or is it too heavy? i am projecting 5 to 6 ounces for the whole airframe. probly over 315 square inches of wing area.

what equiptment? i am guessing two hs-55's, a gws cheapo reciever(will be flying by meself- no need to worry about glitches ). as far as esc/motor lipos, i dont know what size i would need. i guess i can worry about that a bit farther down the road.

so, does this sound like a project that could work?

Sure beano if you keep the weight under 10oz. you could use a IPS.
Good luck and keep us posted.
