Well I tried something I have never done before, use a stooge. I put the pull string in the wrong place and it got into the flight lines. About 1/2 way into the flight the line came off. I had a tail weight on the bird but it came off during the flight. Didn't seem to matter that much to flight. Seemed to fly the same with or without tail weight. I think I need to shock mount the tank as a ton of bubbles where getting into the lines.

Brenda,
    Flight looked great from my view. Couldn't tell the diff as to when
the tail weight came off. Interesting on the stooge concept. Although
I've seen it before I can't recall how they ran their lines for it. Nice Video.

I remember why I can't fly control line!  I kept kicking over the chum-bucket!

I had one hand on control. One hand on pull string. And one hand on GoPro. Yes I have three hands and 8 eyes. Cheesy

Nice to see you in the air.  I love control line as much as rubber power.  For another great flying, aerobatic 1/2a plane try this one by Sundance12.  I built one and it flies very well.  http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_plans/search.php?show_result=1&page=2

I have a Sky King from Black Hawk Models that I was thinking of being my first stunt plane. It has flaps and I have a Big Mig for it. I would really rather find something I can use Brodak electric setup as it is so easy to get going and has tons of power with the right prop.
