Are you serious... an 80 foot wingspan and a 40 foot length?  What do materials cost you?
Comment by Taylor Cox on January 25, 2011 at 9:48pm
I'm sure he meant 80 inches by 40 inches

I fly and have been experimenting in building planes that people sit in.  But I'm just starting to deal with R/C sized aircraft.  So my questions for you are:

1) what is your design Max Gross Weight?

2) Is this based on any specific Wing loading or other structural limitation?

3) Can you point me to R/C based design references so that I can get smarter on these sized planes??


Sorry for all the questions, but I figured since you are offering up your planes for review I figured I ask these up front...

right now I only have est. on weights, since I dont have this plane fully built and flyable yet...

but Id guess areound 5lbs.

If I did the wind area right I should have just under 600N of lift.
