Guys, this stuff didn't just come out last week, people have been using it for years. Combat guys use it and it works well. The line usually comes with a booklet with instructions on knots that work well with their product. I have a few sets of lines in different sizes that have been in continuous use for about 6 years. I used a Palomar knot since it's so easy to get the lines exactly the right length and have never had a failure. I fly 10-15 sized planes on 10 lb. .008 line about 55', 35 size planes on 30 pound .012 line about 65', and 46 size on 40 lb. .015 at 70' The weight difference has to be experienced to be appreciated. I would suggest if you have never tried it and have any apprehension whatsoever, try it on a beater plane and see for yourself. I never met anyone who tried it and said they actually preferred steel in comparison. Some raise safety concerns, but they sure seem safer to me. They can get stepped on all day with no ill effects. They have been flying combat on them for years so there is some track record to refer back to. Trying is believing...


Yep.

I figured you guys balanced them. I've talked to a few guys that told me they don't.  I don't know how they do it.

Either they're blowing smoke, or they aren't very experienced, old or young. A good balancer will cure a lot of ills, but not all.  y1 Steve

Well....I do have one plane that I'd not shed a tear over if it went away, and the .46LA has enough time on it, that I could probably survive without it. Plus, it appears that we'll soon be flying on grass someplace yet to be determined. I'll have to see if I can scrounge up some leftover 65 lb test Power Pro or get in on some of this from Bi-Mart for $10. The 300 yard spool of Super Slick 8 40 lb test came today via UPS, but it cost $40, and I'm not into 65 lb test line for fishing. I'll look into it, and maybe will try some terminal experiments.  Oh, that doesn't sound good! I have a feeling that Bi-Mart won't have 65 lb test. That's mostly trout country, where they use 2 lb monofil for 6" trout planters.  ZZZ Steve

Yes, check balance as you knock the razor sharp edges off them.  So far I haven't found a wood prop with edges sharp enough to cut while flipping the prop as my son found out with an APC.

  There doesn't seem to be any harm in just taking 240 grit sandpaper to the trailing edge until they don't cut your finger any more.

Yep, but I do keep urging Chris to bring out his .40VF Saturn. I loved to watch that thing fly, slow and precise. Not the blazing corners that Paul and Howard fly, and I miss the "slow-motion" pattern it showed. Bigger corner, thus downgraded. Don't get me wrong, I like the hard corner, but I still miss watching Chris flying his Saturn.  y1 Steve

I wonder how much I downgrade big corners vs. other people -- I know that if you give me a tighter than usual corner followed with a wobble or a bow, I'm going to give you a lower score than if you give me a bigger than usual corner with a dead straight line following (if you give me a big round loop with itty-bitty flat spots -- I'll grade you down).

  Check out the hall of Fame section of Stunthanger and Allen's bio. It has the complete bibliography of what he had published.  The Opus was in the British mag, Aviation Modeler International. They should have the plan and perhaps you can find that issue on eBay. He Had designs published in all of the major mags, M.A.N., Model Aviation, Flying Models. I wonder how he found the time to do them all!
   Type at you later,

I just checked Flying Models Plans Service, and didn't find it. You might check AMA's equivalent list. Seemed like Alan published everything he ever built...I'm always amazed to see them. Well, at least you don't have to research MAN's plans list.  Wink Steve
