    Nervous Shake Test

    Last night, I checked to see how much the trim for straight and level flight changed as a result of the weight increase.
    It turns out there were a few surprising differences.

    I set up a rather unusual test:
    Very often on a CFS aircraft, if the balance on the landing gear, contact points, or spring rates are not in harmony, the aeroplane will vibrate or wiggle a little even when nothing is happening.
    To test this, I leave the aeroplane loaded but inactive for a few hours and see if it has moved noticeably from where it started.
    This aeroplane was left overnight and does not appear to have moved.

    - Ivan.

    together with the intricate textures and excellent lines
    this model shows, will surely make it a very successful
    model in the warbirds library - not to mention the

    Nice work!
