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 ."
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 .
. 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 . ? ? ?
maybe . My perception anyway.
Though they all want watching in the bottom hourglass corner
for some reason . Ft. per second etc and so on .
