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.

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
