You are right.
I built mine from your original sketches & I am quite happy with it.
Both water & flight characteristics are delightful.

I have friends that wanted to build a Capricorn like mine but were bothered by the lack of detailed plans.
Now they have no excuse as a dimensioned PDF plan is available.

Paul,

Your Rx is picking up an rf signal from your motor.
Replace Rx.
The Berg, Lepton5, & Chinese clones will do a better job for you.
you can save you GWS Rx for indoor flyers.

Nice work on your Zipper.
I have an old Comet 54" "Zipper" kit. From the 40's, I believe.
