120" DT foam SUPER CUB

I want to see how big I can go with dollar tree foam so I am trying a 120" wingspan super cub I might ask dollar tree if they can sponsor me on this one it will take a couple sheets. I have the wing panels cut out and am starting to draw the fuselage. We will see how this one goes I will keep you posted.

Yeah I am using the turnigy G160 and a 100 amp esc with either a 6-8 cell lipo and like a 20" prop. Should be a fun plane that will draw some attention

The cool part is you can fit it in a truck or suv with seats down. I am building it so you can break it down for transport nylon screws and blind nuts hold your wings tail and rudder section and folding landing gear.

Are you making a One Piece Wing 120 or two halves detachable.
I'm building a 120" wing myself and havent decided which direction.

The two piece detachable seems more complicated and more weight.

I am making it two pieces held on with nylon screws and blind nuts so I can take it to the flying field alot easier.
