    Shrike 10 Fins

    After several years of sitting on my bench half finished I am finally getting back to building a Shrike. A question I have is in regards to the fins. I have seen some posts here where the fins appear to be vertical instead of at the 10 deg angle. This would definitely be easier to build this way. Does anyone have ant thoughts on leaving them at 90 deg vs. the 10 deg angle?

    Thanks

    I've tried building it both ways and I found it flies better with them at the 10 degrees as per the plans.

    The take off is optional, but the landing is MANDATORY!!
