To each his own. I think the question was about putting it inside the model. For me drag is not lift and also for me the way they look is also important. I'm striving for a beautiful model that flies great.Bob Deshields is one of my hero's,we have the same quest. I guess I look at models as an art form we get to play with then build another one.As long as you like what you do I say go have fun. I know I have for 47 years anyway.

Concealed does not mean impractical.

It takes George Fuller about 20 seconds to change a bladder if he has a problem.

Gliders are a part of me.

For serious 'hanging it outside' setups, John Thompson is your man.

Check out some of his articles on building '50s power models in earlier issues as well.

Great stuff
