Oh well, you'll get it figured out.

No so sure I have it all figured out Bob, just ... trial and error (what I'm best at )

Are you flying off of Turner rd up near Pierce ?

Or did I get choose the wrong airport ?
Wrong ... its Perth Airport ... red square shows where I live, small red circle where I fly most of the time and the larger red circle is where I fly with a group of guys on weekends

Pierce Airport is the RAAF base

Hey, Lockey, are you using elevons only for control?

This looks like a very cool and very easy prop-in-slot cantidate..

Thanks Bob, might have to drop Saab a line and tell them that they need to add some "sub fins" to their FS-2020 eh

Hey Aussie guys, this is what I used to paint the FS-2020 and its about the best I've used for Depron without melting the foam ... it dries pretty quick and not TOO expensive, only down side is that there aren't that many colours

Hmm sound like a new Krylon Eco-guard brand I've been recently hearing about.

Expensive and few colors too.
