was a old ' Motorcycle ' cartoon with a doorframe with a low wide cutout. " are you the bloke that built the transverse 16 in his front room ."  Hugh

ANYWAY . the olde 4 foot spar or trailing edge suckers , built at 36 ounces ( if your lucky ) with a unsilenced Fox 35 or the like , tend to be RELAXING to fly .
These days youd go for a silenced 40 . Knocking it up on a Friday night , or over the weekend ; youd be lucky to get it at 40 ounces , without neurosis or
excess use of braincells or dollars . unless your Mr monocote . Lips Sealed . This'd be about the max weight youd get a tight turn from a thin wing thing from .

Some people go flying for the ' buzz ' , some to chill out , and some for the social thing , or to escape the domestic bliss .

For a relaxing / low intensity trip - a light well powered straight sucker on 60 ft. of wire , should cut the mustard . Then theres the economies etc .
Cant see most plastic holding something firm enough for good performace in indifferent air .

Bigger ( 60 in odd ) schneurle things can take a bit of wire , & hold themselves out ; but the level of primary attention to the task is usually paramout .
While they'll fly accurately they need to be flown accurately where the olde 35 size suckers flew themselves a bit more . ? ? ?  Angry maybe . My perception anyway.
Though they all want watching in the bottom hourglass corner  Angry for some reason . Ft. per second etc and so on .

Thanks to everyone.  I made it to Lynn's fun fly today, Saturday, and tomorrow I'm getting together with Rich and Kaige Jones for a Flite Streak tuneup.  Lots of great people here in Colorado. I have two offers to store an airplane here  for future trips so I have to bring something to fly on my next trip. 

Nice to hear that there's still some normal folks there.  I lived for quite a while in Denver and Ft collins, and all my friends from there say most of the denver population is High on a whole new meaning to Rocky Mountain High! y1 Layingdown

I noticed, read the interview, and enjoyed it. I am hopefull that they will interview Paul, Ted, Brett, or David. I am never amused to see them interview some kid that's 12, flies R/C ARFs and doesn't even put those together.  Hoff Steve

I think the center isn't quite right.

Or you need to get your bottoms down. 

Very cool, Tim.  What's it look like with the time axis stretched out?  With pitch rate superimposed?

i swore my rm was completely straight. and in outside maneuvers the lines were slack. not bad, but my scores were terrible. turns out i did have a wing warp. trim tab, and that went away. also, i found that with that fixed, the tip weight was a little light. so maybe both are a possibility for you too.

I'd try adding a much larger vertical stabalizer (i.e., fin) area first...and a bit of right thrust, second. Also, wood (sic) read "Circular Airflow" by Frank Zaic one more time.  Hoff Steve

Bob is correct by my experiences. the tank looks high, but that's because the center line matches the intake. here's an OS 52fs on my 800 square inch ringmaster, and then the ringmaster tri-plane. the tank is lined up with the intake.
