Thanks Kevin, I agree well worth the extra effort. You probly get at least 10% extra boost with the lower drag, and will thermal better than a plane without them. Every little bit helps.
See ya, Rockitglider

Hello again Kevin,
One more question, did you make your own pockets? Or did you purchase a complete setup with all the hardware and pockets already made? On the link that I posted it looks like the setup that is for DLG and Handlaunch gliders(1/16") size doesn't come with the pockets, it says you have to make your own. Thanks,

ASK of rcbuilder.com offers a complete setup: http://www.rcbuilder.com/Merchant2/m...egory_Code=ACC
Though, for $35 I can make a few dozen of these. And its basically your time or his depending on how you look at.

Very nice review of your plane and the hidden RDS system! I will use this on a couple models I have coming over from Latvia.
The current world champion model... I'm sorry I don't have the name of it as it seems to be named based on who is either selling or making the model.
I decided to start with something proven, then improve it.
I will start a thread once they arrive ... takes about 20 days after I paid for the models to be made and shipped...
I scoured the web for information but most FAI sites are in anything but English.
Here is what I know about the model's achievements:
FAI European Championships for Space Models 2011
S8E/P Senior - Overall
1st: Aleksandrs Ojavers LTV ( LATVIA) YL - 261
2nd: Pawel Janisiewicz POL
3rd: Tomaz Starin SLO
World Champion 2011 , 2008 ( st. Place team)
Lauris Pumpurs LTV ( LATVIA) YL – 264
So in about a month I will have more info
