Hi ken, thanks for the response. I think that I will add a shallow keel on mine. I also have some PZ P-51 landing gear and I'm thinking about ways to make plug in gear for the Triton. I also have a Mini Drake in the que so the gear concept might work there too.

On the otherhand, maybe a keel behind the step. That way it would be protected by the lower fuselage on grass or the gym floor but would help as the plane rotates to retain directional stability. It might also help break the suction as it tries to lift off. Just thoughts...I'm still working on my DH89 so I have time to do some thought experiments.
