Gossie - good point on the engine bearers. Will do as you suggest as it is rather marginal.

Ian, 44" should be fine with the mills - after all you want a long slow flight.

I have a throttle for the PAW so will be able to (hopefully) set the speed to not climb too much.
I must say I am inclined to fit some kind of radio operated DT as well.
Would nullify any flight attempt but rather that than lose the model.
Also considering lightweight radio - but still fly her FF (Rx on but TX off) so that in the event of a thermal etc I could still bring her back. Not sure if that would be allowed under the current rules though...having an rx onboard and on, even if it is not being used. Will need to find out. I am sure someone will "cry fowl".
