I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Well if you are going to fill it full of ballast, you might as well make the ballast do something useful..... Wink

Just a thought Rich, but make the fin removable/replaceable. It's hard to tell for sure, but I reckon it might need a bit more fin area to be stable in Yaw. You'll be able to tell when flying it, because it will wobble a bit about the Yaw axis if it needs more fin area. It depends how you like your CG position on wings though, if you put the CG back a bit, it will effectively increase the fin area anyway....
