Yeah...what's up with that? All their power planes are considered "slopers" if you just take the motor off?

Got me. Frankly, I don't think the SS would slope worth a darn. Too light, too fragile. And if you take off the motor and prop and LG, you'd have to move the wing waaaaay back on the stick to get the CG.

Actually, there's an idea. If they want to sell it as a sloper, they should include a weight that fits on (or inside!) the front end of the stick.

A lot of them are. I had a GWS Mustang that was discarded by a friend of mine. He had it with motor, but didn't like the look of it and got a (I think it was ) an e-flight 'stang.
Problem with the GWS planes is the foam. The maiden of my Mustang lasted al of 10 minutes. It then had a realy soft mid air. That was it; end of maiden and end of my Mustang.

I just woke up, and I was reading some headlines. One of them said "Castro addresses Cuba's parliament for first time in years".

I read through most of the article trying to figure out why Costco would be addressing Cuba's parliament.... I think I still need some more coffee.

Oh, and the wing is uncovered but it has a good tape job, which is why it looks so tough...
