I measured it up:

Wing area: 282 sqin
Old tailplane: 42 sqin
New tailplane: 52 sqin, a 25% increase.

I'm know if it works, probably some time in April.

I doubt that a 15-size stunter with this size wing will ever be great, but I hope it's better.

I'm not sure where you think you found the specs Tony, but the Challenger .15 wing is 320 square inches.

Hi War, now I actually feel better that the Challenger is 320 sq"s and not 230sq".

this makes a big difference in performance. I misread the spec details on the pdf plans

on Walter Umland's site. But, please do not assume that I don't know what a good flying

.15 powered profile is like.  To start with, I've flown Fast, F2d, and 1/2A combat, in the

TD .049 35' lines days.  I've built and flown .15 powered profiles that have a bit more

 wing area and are all lighter than your Challenger .15.  These models are all powered by

 sport or high performance(for 1980s...) Diesel engines.   So, now that rant is over with;

I can add your Challenger .15 to the list of models that I recommend for Chris Behm's

TT .15 mk V engine. Good luck;

In this video you can see briefly at about 1:35 mark and then several times after 2 minutes the chop saw, I mean fan in the ceiling I was talking about the flyers were up against lol.  This plane is an electric pusher quick agile thing called an Inavder.  It chews up the hangars space rather quickly but puts on a good show lol.

Lots of my Tribe members now out of work.
We are grieving here. My life changed forever by working on that show. I am who I am because of my Ringling life. It gets on you strong.
I have opinions about it all that I would discuss around a fire.
Those opinions I'll keep off of here.
Here are some of my photos from those Glory Daze.....

As to the animal issues. It is complicated. I saw good and bad but mainly good. I rode an elephant that had killed before. She loved me and I her. she killed a cruel night animal keeper who beat them as he got drunk. They have a way of taking care of their own. She loved performing and I rode her everyday. She would quiver in anticipation of the appluase. Sadly, not all animals get to be free.
Not do people.
What is next? No pets? Guide dogs? No recue animals? No Police Canine units? We all have to go Vegan?

The animals got watered, fed and cleaned. Us clowns did not!

Seems that we live in a We Society. Not an I or a Me but a We.
We don't like what you represent so We will spend our energy to stop what You do and what We do not do.
Happens to Control Liners and R/Cers. We don't like your noise and fun so We will put a stop to it.

Very sad indeed. I had a motorcycle pal who played bass guitar with the circus. He was tragically killed on a highway in Arizona when a tractor trailer had a recapped tire come apart just at the moment he was passing. The debris from the tire knocked him off the bike and that was it for him. Anyway when he was in Philly he gave me a tour of the circus train and took me back stage. It was magical really. I didn't know that there were actually two circus trains traveling around the country so everyone could get to see a show. I'm sure that Shug will be ok,seems like a resilient type.
