Re: Rubber

Well normally, most people lube their bands immediately prior to flying. I'm talking like ... right before they wind their planes. There really is no need to soak the bands in Armor All over night. I'm not sure if it's bad for the bands, but from my point of view ... there's no substantial gain, oth...

Re: Flight Trimming

If you're looking for a slower ascent without backing off winds and losing flight time, you can try using a "flared" broad style Ikara. The broad blades are soft and will bend or flex back to a higher pitch during the beginning of the flight when the torque is extremely high. The higher pitch will c...

Re: Ohio 2010

With all regional tournaments over, any predictions for State? Only three weeks left. Personally, I think the two from Division C will be from Mentor, Centerville, or Solon. Only thing that matters is who gets first. Division B title will definitely go to Solon, hands down, but who will get second? ...

Re: Designs

Thanks!
I also have one additional question, but I'm not too sure if it fits in this topic:
