At this point nothing is concrete, but the proto has a wingspan of 115" give or take an inch but that was the last number I heard from Chris.

Don't know about the physical fit, but not the engine for this plane. It is designed for the DA150 but can take a 170

I think ben says in the video the prototype is 38lbs..so I wouldn't be surprised if the final production model is 35-36lbs based on recent models...DA150 will rip it around

ZDZ 195 should be near perfect.

That would be more suited to the 125" EF offerings, keep in mind this is only a 115" wingspan and really designed for a DA150.

The ZDZ is only 190 grams (.4 lb) heavier than the DA 150. Put the rudder servos in the tail.

The one thing that amazes me in the intro in the start of the video that even the way this plane flies says this is still not good enough and needs more work, Got to love extreme flight.
