Default Designing a GS plane

I am sorry if someone has asked this question in the past, but it is something that I cannot find anywhere else.

I am trying to design a giant scale plane. I have come across a problem, however. I don't exactly know what classifies a plane as "Giant scale". I think that it is somewhere around 80" or 8 feet or something with an 8 in it, but I wasn't sure. What classifies a plane as giant scale and what if it is a biplane (because I know that Bipes have a different system altogether)?

Happy Flying

The most commonly accepted definition of "Giant Scale" is that of the International Miniature Aircraft Association (IMAA) which defines it thus:

- 80 inch minimum span for monoplane aircraft
- 60 inch minimum span for multi-winged aircraft
- Combined minimum length and span of 140 inches for jet aircraft
- 1/4 scale or larger (no matter the span)
