svenyonson
That looks to be a nice well made plane which should fly well. As a balsa/tissue construction glider I would be careful not to add too much weight. Do you know its likely total weight...

I would be very concerned that if the same motor was working effectively on a 5x3 then with a 9x5 the motor will be considerably over loaded.

You are talking of a total plane weight in the order of 27 kg or 60 lbs. I note that such a weight means it would classify as a 'large model aircraft', at least in the UK and EU, that...

SkyersJet
