Gossie, wha'd'ya mean "looks worse than it is"... I think it looks very nice (OK, apart from the spinner!).
Recently, you posted a photo of yourself (I think), launching a Playboy Senior. Was it this plane?
The photo interested me because I can only fly RC and hand launch in the fields close to our house, and I've always considered that the "hand launch" excluded bigger than "medium" size models, so that photo changed my ideas a bit...
