OK-

So I got the name wrong. LOC has changed the name from Starfighter to Delta Strike fighter. At any rate, has anyone built and flown one of these? It seems very tail heavy, yet it has enormous fin area below the CG. I couldn't find any nose weight details on EMRR

try Rocsim, but you've probably already tried this

I one that has flown successfully serveral times, I will check to see how much weight I have in the nose on mine.

I got mine when it was a beta, I do not know if it had a name then. Either way I really like it, I fly it on F-40 econojets. I have busted the fins off a couple of times and had to re-glue them. That is the one drawback of the extensive surface mount fins.
