Like a DA 120 or an OS 120?
DA120 the wing span for now is 106 inches. This depends on the type of wing tip I use. I like The Horner type not exactly scale but they really work well . Little difficult to do correctly but they work. This wing tip really helps with tip stalling, Just trying to make this plane a good stable flying machine.

That seems like quite a bit of power for a scale Taylorcraft. The 1/3 scale JTEC Taylorcraft spans 112", engine size recommended is 50 to 100 cc.

You are correct I have several 100cc engines but do not have a DA120. It is lighter and shorter. Buying another 100 did not make sense so I got 120 this will open some other doors later on. Depending on the wing tips and wing loading the wing cold get up to 110.

Wow, I see that it was discontinued in 2014, surprised you found it. Never needed or used it but have read it is the best for cleaning cans and pipes. I think if I ever need to clean out a can I would take it to the local speed shop for a hot tank cleaning. I have also red that antifreeze in a Crock Pot is the way to clean glow engines, never tried it since I sold my last glow engine 30 years ago.
