OK mabye it's just XXX Large (48 inch wing),
but hey, When you scale the 3mm drawings to double,
You don't have to redraw nuthin.
Just use your 6mm stock.
I'm open to powerplant suggestions.
the wieght of the foam only is 14 oz.
Oh, I'm 6 feet tall (truthfully more like 5'-12").
It makes a good hat too!

Wow that`s a biggie. I don't have much experience on foamie pushers (apart from my small F-16 Falcon), but I would think if my Axi 2808-20 flies a 30 ounces sport model with authority, it would work on that one.

I' m looking at about 22 oz's with all of the gear except motor, plus this thing has thrust vectoring elevators. The himax will crank out 36 or so oz's for about 70 odd bucks.

Dave, that is too cool!

I assume you have some fiber in the plane.

I bet a Little Screamers Purple Peril witha an 8x4 DD prop would work well in it.

MAN!! and i just finished building your shock flyer F-15, and now you come up with this? LMAO I cant wait to see whats next how bout a 60 inch wingspan version?
as for a power plant, what about a MEGA 16/15/3 on 3s2P 3600 mah lipo with a 6x5.5 prop, or the new JUST GO FLY 450TH , should hit over 100 easy with blistering vertical!

Now there's an idea. Kai's in 48 inch with a 450th. I gunna work through that one parkzonekid. Gotta love a $50 mega killer.

I don't take much prodding.

I'll probably use HS-56 on the individual control surfaces.
Or hs81 on dual controls
I like the mega thing, but the Himax is idle on my bench.
The winds are really blowing now.......woops

It flys!

Yes folks, it fly's, It's a hog, but it flies.
It is verymuch like it's little 24" brother
I flew it by myself this evening, tomorrow I'll have someone video it.
