Re: ACE Cloud Dancer ARF update

I'll buy that! I have the .60 version with a Saito .80 and the thing
glides forever once it gets into ground effect. Gotta try landing it at
a higher angle of attack to slow it down. Or maybe I need to practice
slipping it.....or..or....

John... Not to worry....almost never do kit built planes weigh what the manufacturer says they will . All that I've built have come out heavier than the kit producers say they will. They fly great anyway.
