I may build a monster version. How much would one with a 12 foot wing span lift?

The v-tail mixer worked for throttle differential? I was going to (and still might) use that on the puddle monster I am building and was told it wouldn't work. Looks like it is working fine for you. Have you had any issues with it?

I didin't have any problems with it. It just requires the v tail mixer. I definitely want to see a 12 foot ws version of this. Imagine the payload it could haul

Okay, so with the information you provided I drew out a very basic plan for the Twins. Let me know if you can see any mistakes or major differences from your design. If not I'll continue with it and make some more detailed, more usable plans. Could you also confirm that the length is ~43" and maybe give us some idea of the CG. Lastly, what airfoil did you use? I used the one from the Blu-Baby in the design pictured below.

Thanks! I can't wait to get building.

Okay! Glad to hear it looks good to you! I will be putting up a PDF as soon as it's ready. I'll have to do a bit more work first though but I will try and make it as simple and as printer friendly as I can (this is a BIG plane). Let me know if there is anything you think I should include with the PDF.

Good stuff !!!

Is it 6mm or 3mm depron ? Please mention the prop and battery pack.

57" ws and the plane took off with rc tank onboard and only two blue wonders !!!

You might add the CG, the exact position of the main wing, landing gear position, the engine nacelle side view, and the real airfoil and how you formed it, how you aligned the main wing and keep it in that position, and any inner shelving or braces and stiffening on the wing and fuse. A few things off the top of my head. I know expert builders may not need those things, but some of us do.
