RE: Do they all fly with a high AOA

Yes! The u-channel works awesome, but will bend in hard crashes. The tubing is a LOT tougher. However, the U-channel is fine and will make a great airplane. If you go with the U-channel Spa3d, I do...

RE: DPS disappointment

Some of us simply refuse to comment. As I type this I am sitting about ten feet from the original DPS, from even before I came up with a name for it. Over 27 years and 400 airplanes...and it is my...

RE: Dagger question

Yes, larger tail feathers will help stability. However, I think you have something else causing the death spins...as the Daggger has always been a solid flyer. Two things to look at are tail heavyCG...
