I have one, my thread is part-way down this section (Weston Magnum w/ Q40 Nelson...195-ish one) with plenty of pictures and video. First off, you are going to have major c.g. issues with a motor that large. They come in rather nose heavy with a full bodied 50 on the nose, I have a Q40 Nelson on mine. I'm looking at my manual right now but I don't know of one available online. The wingspan is 34.45 inches. The manual states the aft-most recommended c.g. as 5.1 inches. Mine is set around 7 and I only got that because the Nelson is so light. I'm tickling 200, best of luck. -Chris

thanks for the info that will give me some direction on how i need to go about building this plane. i want a magnum but think i will try to build something like it or close to it, need a project and need to try out my building skills. which i dont really think i have much of. however the retracts i "engineered" for my f-22 are operational, just need to finish covering it, which my skills there are lacking alot.

thanks for the help i will post pictures on the build once i get started. and maybe it will actually fly.
