Fuse #s: AMA says you're supposed to have your number somewhere in/on the plane -- I've been working on a theme lately of using mine as my fuse side reg.#, along with some 'stylized' version of the AMA lettering. My Blaze when finished will have a 'sunburst' pattern (done for me by Callie's Graphics) on top of the wing (see pic) and I found a font that looked something like that design so, got her to also do my AMA # in that. I'm strongly thinking of duplicating the wing design on my Minimoa, since it so resembles the Habicht with its gull wings & Sunburst design -- in fact I patterned my design after the Hawk - that glider's just 'Da Bomb' to me! .
I think it was around 5-6 deg, Ill have to double check. Just enough to make it fly well.

I'll have my AMA reg number somewhere on my sailplanes, it is just such a long number and not really sure where it should go, possibly inside the cockpit? I design my own graphics and prefer the scale sailplane look, yes the DFS Habicht sunburst is very, very nice.
