Re: Need help on biplane.....

The sizes you stated would be good for an outdoor flier, it would be sweet with one of the new Hacker outrunners.

The only problem is there's no way to know if your design will be a good one, until you try it. If it doesn't fly as slow as you like, you can add strips to the front of the wings, it slows it right down.

I was thinking of putting strips on the ailerons even before even the first flight.
