its a low wing aircraft and has wing span of 48" and most people build them with a tilted outer wing for stability. I have a kit that I got last year from a friend but with the demise of Top Flite (Hobbico) you will have a hard time finding a kit to build! I have seen them powered by a.45 or bigger engine. My friend built one in 1978 and it was a nice airplane until his brother took over the controls and packed it in!
good luck

people think that just because the kit is no longer being made it worth 3 times what it cost when produced, now way, I cann get the plans and scratch build it for a lot less than what kits are selling for now.

If you have a laser cutter in your neighborhood it makes it a lot easier!
