Default giant trainer GAS powered

I need help from the SPAD Guru's
I would like to build a trainer style spad big enough to put a US35cc Gas engine on. What would be the math equation to scale up the DEB or is there a better design. would like to go with a 80" or better size wingspan need to stay around 15 lbs finished that would be about max on this engine

35cc? That's what I've got in 'Lucky'. She tips the scales at 24 pounds, wet. Flys like a trainer, and lands at a walk. 96" wing. She isn't all done yet (graphics), and I will have a thread dedicated to her as soon as she is. She is a big, beautiful brute in the air, and the 35 cc pulls her around nicely.

You can also go to spadtothebone.com and look at Krauts Ultra Spad Stick "USS". The plans are as good as it gets and it flys like a dream...

I built mine in about a week, I used a 45cc Homey and this thing will do just about anything you ask it to.
