Now , If I may , I'd sure love to see a few pictures of the models of the weight you fly . To me a twenty pound model is huge and to see models 50 or better pounds would be great .

PS , this is an open request to not only Andy , but to all who fly the big ones , let's see some of that balsa overcast !!!!
Here is one of my favorites.

Here is one I flew 14 ft wing span under 10 lbs designed to lift 45 lbs. Check out the under camber airfoil. The test flight at the end of the video was done empty. Power was a Jett .65.

Here's what I've been flying for the last five or so years. It's 14 lbs and powered by a CMB .67

When that shot was taken I was using a 75MHz radio. That has since been upgraded to a 2.4 GHz

Very nice Dave. When it comes to our models orange is a favorite color of mine. This one is all fiberglass and was saved after landing in a vineyard. A little glass, a little paint and she was good as new. Flew her 4 years until a voltage regulator failure put her into the dirt.
