Hey Ron,
If you build it exactly as I suggested,it is a very competitive machine. I recently flew the last ALES comp up at SVSS. Honestly the Aspire's perfomance left nothing to be desired. Mine is a little light at sub 68 ounces but I was able to move with standard reflex settings. I will set up a second model with a heavier wing and ballast tube. The firewall-fender washer is strong enough for competitive landings. In 5 landings I was able to post 4-50pointers and 1-40 pointer when I bounced off the metal center which looked like it was the tongue end of a seat belt. By the way on one flight I went horizontal for 12 seconds then when I saw the bounce went vertical for 15 when the Aspire reached 200 m...
If I am still building your fuse out get your components together..LJ
