Default Giant Sized Trainer

Does anyone know where a guy can find constrution plans to a big gas trainer,
with at least an 8 foot wingspan. Maybe a "Giant Stick" or simular, has to be able
to handle a 50cc engine.

Many thanks in advance

The first plane that comes to my mind would be a Giant Telemaster. 12' wing and will hold the weight of a 50cc motor .short take offs!

Didn't Crazy Herb do something like that? Do an RCU search on his user name. Of course you need to have a tolerance to pink styrofoam......

I bought a plane at an auction last year called a Big Bee and it came with the original plans from Bridi. I did some research and it and is billed as a giant scale trainer. This one came with a US41 engine and it flies very good, but it might be a bit underpowered. The kit is apparently still available. See the link below.

My club has built two Treehopper trainers which are used when we bring out Cub Scout troops for some buddy-box flying. They are powered by modified Sears 21cc leafblower engines. See the kit at http://www.rcguys.com/treehopper.htm

Thanks for all of the leads & suggestions, I have my eye on the Bridi Big Bee, in fact a club member has one and I might take a run over to his shop this weekend to take a look at it.

Thanks,

Bill D.
