Looks like we're going to build a couple for FB's to try out... will make one swept tail as per suggestion... Hinge line will be straight,not swept ..This moves up the effective rudder much higher up away from the wing ...??? All about testing anyway

As I sit here at work GPW it absolutly Bucketing Down and Blow'n, floods etc. If your Ducks want to fly South, tell them not to bother.... the weather here is shot as well .....

Hat, 91% alcohol from the grocery/drug store ... MS's trick ,Cheap,works great!!! Bathroom tissue works great as a soft paper towel ... keep wiping the ink with a clean side of the paper or the ink will smear and make the foam look dirty... more wiping..
