Default 60" wingspan DVII

I have a 32cc McCulloch weed wacker the guy across the street gave me, would this have enough power for a 60" DVII ?

I'd imagine it's probably a bit to big for only 60"

The Hangar 9 DVII is 64" and is suited to a 80 size 4 stroke or about 13cc. Whereas the Balsa USA 1/4 Scale has a top wingspan of 88" and is suited to a 25 to 35cc motor.

If you built something to this size and weight (They say 18-20Lbs) you'd have to be pretty close.

Thanks for the help, 80-88" is just as easy to build so that's what we will do, this will be my 1st scratch built spad, I have built a few Aircores, still have the colt and trainer.
