So what are you saying that Tony felt bad about his behavior/anger issues until Wallace made him realize it's not too bad until you run down family members? I'm not sure that's helping his case. btw I have 3 driving championships under my belt. When you drive around a race track you see everything and I know  angry drivers can do some pretty crazy stuff. Nobody will know what was in his head except Tony but here's a distinct possibility "There's that SOB that almost wrecked superstar me and now HE'S mad!? I'll scare the hell out of him"! Then he revved his engine and slid a little too far.

 The bottom of my plane was open also(where a pipe would fit) and it had a large air intake on the nose. Be careful with the Velcro straps,I saw a guy lose a battery at the intersection of a vertical 8. Dumping up to 10 oz. of nose weight is ugly for a plane. He was flying a SV 11 installing the battery from the bottom.

Here are the exhausts attached to the model.

Look different put in place.

For those interested.

First, I suspect that you're over-thinking this.  As long as the action is smooth, I don't think that the leadout guide friction comes close to dominating the total effect of all forces in a control system, particularly after launch.  If it's already good enough, why not put your effort into making things better elsewhere?

Second, I think brass against steel is a good combination.  Whether the brass is tubing, a block with holes, rivets or screws, I think it's a good choice of leadout guide material if you're using plain steel wire.

Third, Google for Line III (or Line 3).  It's really about telling you where to put your leadouts, but a line drawn from the plane center of gravity to the leadout will probably be about as close as you can get to the actual exit angle of the lines without careful camera work on a flying plane.

Fourth, I don't think that your friction will go up with a straight tube in back, but the system may wear better if you put in your suggested bow.

I have seen Don's ships up close in Texas. Let me tell you, if these things were laser cut kits, they would sell like hot cakes at a pancake eating convention!!

Just pulled the trigger on some 1/16th plate. They say it comes out of Kentucky and will be here Fri. Looks like the real deal stuff from Dragon Plate is on sale for more than 3x the price.

Glad you found a bunch close to you to fly with. Sounds like you are going to be honing your skills. Maybe I'll see you at the Nats next year. Your sure going to be missed up here.

Hi Crist,

Glad to hear you are enjoying Southern hospitality!! Joe Gilbert is the best and Colleen holds up her end of hospitality too. Course they are OKs and not Texans! If you make it to Dee Rice's Roundup contest down in Houston, you will meet some more friendly Texans!
