Okay guys, lets see what we got here.

I am using a Thunder Tiger 42GP motor, 24' x 24" coroplast sheet.

I am thinking of using "counterbalances". Should I go ahead and do it or have you guys already experimented with it?

I was thinking making the elevons 6" long from the standard 4. Make the rudder 1.5" bigger then the standard 4" long (from stab).

I also have a new material for the engine mount thats 10 x better then that strong wood that always breaks

What do you guys do, i need a 3D PBF MONSTER

Go for it, you can allways cut them off later.

I had a thought too, about a mod....what if ya to a 24" piece of pipe insulation and sliced it in half and glued the half round piece on top of the PBF wing....might give ya some lift ??
