Default looking for giant arf ,cub/telemaster etc.

I have been approached by a guy to build and work with him on building and testing some search equipment to be carried up by a giant scale plane. This may sound far fetched but the end result will possibly be a plane to help locate a missionary that came up missing in the jungles of south america due to a full scale plane crash. I dont really have the time to build this from a kit but if I have to that is an option. I am looking for an arf in the 10ft+ range, more then likely a telemaster, cub,etc something that would be able to carry some equipment aloft and fly slowly for a search pattern. Anyone know of any planes that might be available that would fit this bill?
thanks
Jeff

Why not move this from "3D and Aerobatic" to the "General" giant scale section?

The 12 ft telemaster is the best heavy hauler I know of and it comes as an arf too.

and it breaks down to a resonable size for transport.

Yes that is the plane that we were looking at but it is out of stock and I need to shoot them an email and see when they are predicted to be instock. I might be able to build a kit while waiting for the arf to come available.
I have this listed in the arf section also.
thanks

I just found a 12 ft telemaster for sale on this site. It says Graves RC Hobbies but the web site is Hobby Lobby International. Anyway they claim to have it in stock (kit form) with free shipping.

http://www.gravesrc.com/category_s/3...show=30&page=1

It went clear through the check out without showing back order. They show one in stock.

Good Luck
Jim

Take a look at Bill Hemple giant scale Cubs, they are all ARFs and 10' + spans and then some...
