Mal,

You're welcome! And thanks for the kind words! I'm checking the hour-by-hour wind forecast for tomorrow morning & it looks like it'll be great for UM flying in the early morning. I'm planning to head to the field early with my F4U, Mossie, Beast, XP - and my 48" Precision Aerobatics Extra 260 unlimited ship. My F4U seems to be just a tad tail-heavy. Not by much, but I notice a slight ballooning tendency just as I cut the power to land. Might not actually be a CG issue, though. CG, incidence & thrust-line problems can have similar symptoms.

Since I had the Hyp 160 fully-forward, I'm going to try the heavier Hyp 180 'flat-pack' cell. I'll know right away if moving the CG forward solves the problem. I'm thinking about trying a 5043 while I'm at it. Ground clearance seems to be adequate - I might as well give it a go.

Joel
