I had to mod my onyx because of a mishap in a tree. I rebuilt it at 74" long, it weighs around 41 ounces. I'm planning on flying it on a G80-7, rock sim says it will do about 1100ft. I 'm planning on using 3/4" flat nylon for a shock cord but I'd like to know how much I should use? Any help would be appreacated. Thanks Mike

Mike...rule of thumb is 3-5 times the full model length. I usually go on the high side, using 5 times the length on L1 and L2 models. 3/4" flat nylon seems awful big though, width wise.
