The IMAC guys use soda bottles for fuel tanks. Someone sells an anodized lid for them with the fittings built in. I know one trick is to heat the bottom gently with a heat gun while applying air...

Your model of 40 years ago that fluttered had very weak servos compared to today's standard. You probably also used 2-56 rods. I have seen lots of models flutter, including foamy park flyers. Every...

Interesting questions about mass balance and chord line. Very few sport models have mass balances. I can't think of any. Good servos and linkages really make this a non issue for this type of model...
