I just traded for a used Steig from a buddy the other day, was amazed at how well the plane flew! its like an F3J ship. covers ground really well and can cruise from thermal to thermal so easy its almost rediculis! after about 20 or 30 throws I started to amp up my launch with more power and was easily getting 180 ft and then I ripped the wingtip completly off along with the throwing peg! couldn't believe it! so I put a couple layers of carbon uni on top and bottom of tip and just put the blade back in with radiused edges and epoxy with micro balloons and moved the blade a little deeper towards centerline. Before it was pretty far out and right on the edge or the reinforced area. So, be very carefull if you're going to push peg placement outboard and an feel for the hard point! I have the full carbon wing.
