Oh yeah....about the 'finger work'. Anybody else find that fuse to be kinda slick-ish around that one point you hurl from? I've been thinking of adding a small patch of sandpaper/emery cloth or something at that spot for better grip. It's not so much that you've gotta toss it all that hard - she practically flies 'erself out of your hand -- but with the weight distribution at that hold-point, more than once I've nearly had the wind blow it out of my grip as I was walking out to the pilot's station, turning around & positioning myself to launch, etc. Those big wings catch a lot of wind, they do! Again, biggest thing that's kept me from doing it (adding some 'grippy') is concern for how it might affect gliding. That, & not decided yet what'd be best to use.

Anyway, y'all fly the same plane so you must have experienced it too. Given some kinda remedy any thought??
