The crepe paper streamers are 1 inch. I put the 2 inch roll in my band saw and carefully saw them in half. I like the 1 inch, less drag and still good visibility.

Also use these streamers for our outdoor FOAMINATOR combat....20 foot long. Indoor ones are about 6 ft long.

Looks like a very nice model, I expect it will fly as good as it looks , looking forward to the flight report. Are you planning to try it indoors?

To get nice level flight, the CoG on my Nutball came out about an inch forward of the
recommended setting. Is this normal? I have two washers down and two right.

It ROG's with no input. Nice soft climb.

Both of mine have flown nicely with the CG a bit behind the recommended say 27 -28% , I do the dive test and set the CG so that the model slowly pulls out by itself. There is of course no "Right" position it comes down to personal preference and what you intend to do with the model.

hopefully next Saturday.
I will try to make a video.

Should fly like my Monocoupe with the same board.
There's a video on my youtube channel.

that's correct................nice level flight is for sissies , takes a real nut to get the cg waaaaay back there when it's just about impossible to fly straight and level w/ any throttle on the fun is about to start
