what is the largest you can cut I would still like to try to see a 120TL for the big floaty days geared motor for a slow climb up the motor off for that relaxed afternoon flying..

I have my EYE out for packages..

Don't laugh a 80inch FS would be out of sight..

This will be fun fun,120 inch Tl would be sweet.

I am not laughing a 120' fs would be outa site.LOL
I want to go 70 plus inch wide on the towers.
I will cut each side in one pass.But what is nice is after the cut you will be able to lift ea wing 1/2 off in 2 to 3 joinable pieces,If it is under 90 inches it can be done in 2 pieces .
If the wing is over 90 inches it will most likely be 4 pieces total.
This will help in shipping and building.I will be able
at this point to do a 130 inch.
It could be done w out much trouble ,And not having to do multiple setups and cuts would make it verry simple.
They will also be epp not styrene,And will be avail upon request if all goes rite.
