I think what Ill do for safety sake, is to double up the bungee cords.

I use Threra-Band instead of surgical tubing. Its 1/3 the cost and doesnt snap in cold weather. Far superior in my opinion. It comes in diffrent colors, that designate the strength. Im using Black. http://www.thera-band.com/store/prod...p?ProductID=27
I think two black length should be able to handle near 50lbs of pull illl require.

Trev, I don't like to be negative but I think that if you fit good quality retracts, heavy RC Lander unit and 10 or 12S it won't be a nice brick to fly but more like a flying concrete block, but I still love the way it shines, Joe.
