    Good idea Brian. Accurate set up and correct trimming. It takes only a small error to make a noticeable problem.

    Doesn't take much to amaze some people, but you're still making assumptions. I didn't say I do believe in God. You know what they say about memory.

    Hey Brian, I don't believe in evolution either. Again, it's just a theory, with no "real" proof. If some want to believe they are monkey's, well...

    With all the resources and technology available to the USAF, if it exists, don't you think they would be able to prove it? I'm sure they've tried.

    Not exactly sure Brian as I haven't measured it, but I think it would be around 2.5 - 3 degrees.
