      Hi I keep creasing the fin on my mini dart DLG, mainly cos I cant catch it every time and the field I fly in is very short grass and very hard. I have fixed it a few times but it is now just getting heavier. If I made a balsa fin, either with our without glass skin and carbon spar, as I can make these very cheaply, anyone got any idea how much heavier it would be compared to a the current carbon foam one? The carbon one is 3grams Thanks Tom

      It's had a test flight... I only wanted to throw it for a trim flight and see how it reacted to rudder input but the wind was too light and variable to be able to do this. Instead I got the bungee out for some flat launches to just get some speed up to see what happened. Did a couple like that, couldn't really gauge anything, so then went 'all in' and had a go at a proper launch. It goes up nice! Rotates itself into the climb and just needs a little back pressure to keep the line under tension. Once up I could really tell how it went. Much better as it goes! There is still a little wallow if you try come out of the turn too quickly and changes of direction look horrid, almost like adverse yaw from a No Rudder aileron roll, quite strange but that's just how then are if what I read about them is true. Cant wait to have a go in a decent breeze now
