The HK stabilizer works OK if you are doing a standard REA setup. It theoretically can handle elevons or a V-tail. I did get it to work with elevons in my Arado 555 but it took a lot of fooling...

My old DX6i said 30 paces (approx.100 ft) in range check mode. Supposedly that was 1/30 of full range. That same radio (in normal mode) would give at least 2400 ft on the ground which was the...

Most Txs have a reduced power range check mode. That will detect most serious communication problems at 30 to 50 paces. You'll typically get better range aloft than you will at ground level.

What about building a ramp with a long (10 feet?) arm off the front with a pulley. Maybe a couple legs to support it. Then you could have a much longer bungee cord and yet still be free standing. ...

You can also push them in enough for the barbs to mark the wood and then pre-drill holes for the barbs if that's what's splitting the wood. I add some epoxy when they are inserted for good measure.

Nigel, that's LUNCH, that's what picnic tables are for.;-)

Seriously, a catapult would work. I use a fishing scale to set the bungee at 5x the model's weight.

+1 on that.

Unless you are running kW setups or making your own batteries, pick the style used by your favorite battery supplier and standardize on that.
