Default My 1941 vintage Taylorcraft.Nine foot wingspan

I got this 1941 Taylorcraft last summer from a guy that used to fly with my late father. It was just the plane. I bought a 52 cc motor from Hobbyking which is sized like a 40 cc. The wingspan is nine feet. I believe this plane was built from plans, not from a kit. It was built in 1989. It has been flown with a 40 cc but he said that it wasn't enough for it. I plan to fly it this summer. It is a lot of work to put this thing together for flight. This is my first giant scale plane. I kinda wish it was a clipped wing but I got a great deal on it so it is what it is. I expect it will be a slow flier.
