Default RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

Hi all, I pulled out a ribbon today due to the swirling wind. I put it on the single stir stick. Lo and behold, non flyable airplane can fly. It won't go iinto a nose up climb or a hard dive, and it won't flip turn. But it will fly, and the other option was to try really hard not to lose the plane to the wind, or just plan on chasing the plane around the yard. If you used these before the shorter version for the bipe isn't long enough. Silk ribbon works best, I've got a peice about 36" right now. Tim

update, the shorter ribbon will work on the double stir stick, and you get a bouncier flight. BTW, the wind as measured at a nearby school is 7-10 mph, gust to 18 mph. Needless to say, a gust will generally land the plane for you. Have fun, Tim

update 2, stir stick flyers, in the wind with the stir stick and ribbon, I flew the wing off of the plane. If you think about how much force is needed to remove the wing, I think that is amazing.
