    I'd try ironing them. Start with a low temperature, and work your way up. I'd only try steam as a last resort, but it might just be the ticket to success. Good luck, and let us know if it worked.

    The question of CG location has come up before. I believe it's been covered in the Kit Building Thread. About 4 5/8" back from the leading edge. That seems a little far back, for a 10" cord, which is...
