That wingspan would be gigantic! Even made out of light materials, there's going to be some issues wearing wings that large. They're going to be too big to fully extend in most indoor locations, and outdoor even a light breeze will catch that massive surface area like a sail. In fact, I think that's roughly the scale used in the early days of flight.

If it was me and there were some spare materials around, I'd try to mock up a full size proof of concept, just to get a feel for how large you can comfortably wear.

yer ive been thinking long and hard about it i think this is going to be huge and i didnt even think about that but if i make the wings smaller then there not going to have the same effet in the over all look i may put this on the back birner for now and have a think about that to do i will carry on with some r and d tho just in case any one else needs any think

You might make your thread easier to find in a search if you change the spelling in the thread title, I'm not being critical just trying to help.
Vulture.

Good luck with the build.
