Very good comments again Sully...I think you are right. Ultimately - especially with this power setup I've invested in - it makes sense to stay with the 4S setup even with a higher wing load for the reasons you mentioned. Your plywood grip is a good idea. I actually think I found a good setup with those "bowling ball holes" I cut out. I was surprised how much better and more confident the hand toss was with the three hole configuration. If only I could have saved her a few moments later.

I've got all the pieces taken apart. I was going to ship them to Don for him to have a look if he would be so kind. Hopefully everything is still okay.

You let me know when you're back up to my neck of the woods and we most certainly will have to get a couple Habu's in the air!
