The E-flite then, doubt the Donkey will have the jam for a wing that big.

Very nice!

Interested to see if you can make it stiff enough. What foam are you using?

Can't wait to see it fly
Gonna hand launch it?
Maybe just throw it off a tall building?
Or are you going to fit it with landing gear?
Not that it hasn't been done, but bracing that thing will be challenging.

Do you think it's worth laminating something that big? All it's going to add is weight and you're only going to get one crash.

my friend and I have been discussing that very thing this evening. So we've decided to fly it as is. if it lasts more than two flights then we will laminate. We have dreams of a flying fortress. To take off with four asassins strapped to the top and bomb them for attack.

that guy has two motors on hes wing maybe a torque donkey motor may be the way to go slow wing at first then try another powerplant if you use laminate it might have a long life of bumps-hits just like the small one wont know till you try it
