Default Ramp for jump practice - size?


What angle and length would make a good ramp to practice jumping for a 4WD 1/10 buggy? This is portable to practice at work or in a park.
My intial thoughts are to make it about 2 1/2 lengths of the car with the first half curved increasing up to 45 and the second half not curved.
Should there be a small recurve at the take off end?

Requires enough "flight time" to practice nose up/down throttle control but not too high to break often on the mistakes.

Thanks Jeff

I dont know how big it is but heres mine and i have a like sport tuned stock motor (electric)
im assuming you would have more power = hang time

i guess i could measure it up if you want
now i have my mamba max and i get about mm 5 meters distance and about 4 1/2 foot in the air.

i think you should keep it a steady curve.. having the curve change may upset the car a little bit.
