I used one "stick" of ballast Sunday at Visalia on my last flight of the contest with the Oculus. There was some light breezes on tghe ground, and many powerful thermals working through the field.
With the added 6oz weight, the plane had no problem in the massive thermal I drove it to.
In fact, it may have helped it climb higher with the slightly higher airspeed the plane was cruising at.
I can say that using the center panel main spar as a ballast tube does work.
