    I have end plates on my banshee, so I can't easily check...but you could scale one up and try it on

    Yes. Just a Clark Y. Not really thinned. Just the skin that is lost when running the hot bow through it.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Hey Alex,

    Have you tried using a symmetrical airfoil (like SD 8020) on the Wraith or Banshee? Tempted to try something like that.

    Unless you spend equal amount of time inverted, there's little point in symmetrical wings. They produce less lift for the same amount of drag.

    I read it was better for high speed planes.

    Nope. Besides, this was not designed for high speeds. It was designed to be a durable, nimble proximity plane.

    I have multiple aircraft that go over 100mph. None have a symmetrical airfoil.

    So, erhh...would be possible to buy some spare tailbooms? Mine kinda exploded. It's taped/glued back together again, but I couldn't find all the foam pieces.
