Building up to 53", I've been able to use the same methods and thin sheeting that I use on smaller planes, but at 84" it would probably take some rethinking, as well as not being able to predict the AUW and choose the power system off top of head. Looks like a good project.
Hi Bill, it is far larger than I've tried before and I'm rather concerned about hanger rash as well not to mention storage. Your comments on smacking models in the build room really resonates with me too as I'm always doing that as well.
I feel that I just have to try this and then I can really assess all the issues that arise from building and flying this sized model.
