I agree with Chellie. IMHO, CG measuring jigs are of limited use. How the plane flies is more important than exactly where the CG is. 1/4 from the LE is good enough for the maiden. Put the plane in...

Another good one is the myth that a stalled wing loses all lift. It doesn't, but the lift-to-drag ratio gets unmanageable for most airplanes. Except for 3D planes that have enough engine power to...

I do APC up to about 14x7 and wood above that. The reason is that the plastic (composite) props tend to get a bit too wobbly above that size. I have a 16x8 APC on my 58" Edge and you can clearly hear...

Almost exclusively futile attempts at 3D and freestyle aerobatics. Although I'm toying with the idea of getting a sail plane. One of my clubs has some wicked thermals and I'm always jealous of all...

You hit the head on the nail! The plane in question is super floaty and has a very benign stall. However, it's got a bunch of mass and it's apparently not very draggy, so it just keeps going. Shallow...
