flies so nicely, I figured it would be cool to have a larger one. When I met with Walt Musciano (designer of the C/L version from 1959) last fall, I mentioned how I had added a lot of weight to the nose to be able to get it to balance. He said it would 'still be a Stunt Trainer if the nose was longer' so, with his ok, I lengthened the nose on this larger plane by 1in and the tail by 2in. Hopefully with the lighter design behind the wing and a slightly-beefier front end it will take much less additional weight..."
