    With the lighting holes they are quite a bit lighter than light ply.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    195"? Ah yeah! Now that is what I'm talkin' 'bout. Love me some big planes. Just an opinion here. The DLE 170 will probably do a good job on this Behemoth bird. Have yet to see a DLE engine perform less than adequately. And more times, far above most expectations. But, (here's the opinion) If you can make the quad happen, I say do it. The extra weight (especially for a plane of this caliber) is a small price to pay in exchange for the massive cool factor they offer. Granted, a little more setup and baffling. But well worth it. Love my "dub" 212 quad. My son has a 222 on his 43% Edge. Talk about a swiss watch! Go for the quad!
    Glad you're back at the building table. Looking forward to more really "BIG" plane building.

    Thanks, I have a DLE 170 not doing anything right now, But I quad 222 is going to be the choice, the cool factor, usable weight plenty of room in the fuse for set up.
