larger plans

I just found this thread and would like to try to build the Aero. Since my eyes aren't as good as they once were, I would like to build it in a larger version. Something like a 60" to 80" wing span. Has anyone asked for plans this size? If so can you tell me the post #. Thank you very much.

TRUE! They should have had enough class to think of another name. In place of "Stick" they should have named it "Stolen".
