that is cool.

do you know what makes it illegal? weight, size or other I found out earlier this year you can apply for a special license to fly the really big planes. One of the horizon guy's brought a 52%.

each wing was like 5-6 feet.

It has to do with weight, I think nothing over 100lbs or something like that. If you care to know you can dig it up on AMA's web site.

52% are legal and actually very common in the US.

Yeah, it is the weight. Over 50lbs its considered experimental and the AMA has to check it, and they let that experimental class go up to 100lbs. Over that and you are not covered by the AMA, you can still fly it though.

Safety is likely the key issue with the weight limitation.
