I believe that to be officially a giant scale a monoplane must either be quarter (or larger) or have a wingspan of 88", or greater.

IMAA: "An RC aircraft must be a true quarter scale RC airplane, or have at least an 80 wing span to be considered Giant Scale by the IMAA"

Good. I'm glad somebody looked it up instead of trusting my fading memory.

Sounds like a great model. I'll be interested in seeing the build.
