Since the only comments from anyone who may have to hide under their car involved more swing tests, that's what I did. And to think this came from someone who's 'handle' in Mayhem :)Actually, I only did one swing test - the after burnout version. It passed. I was also going to swing it with spent forward and loaded mid-motors but the CG is in the wing area. The only way I decided that I could securely attach the rope involved drilling. I had also wanted to stress-test the Rocksim CP by moving the CG to the back of the main wings. However, lead filled 24mm motors couldn't do it and I didn't want to stress test the squishy craft store balsa, so that was a no-go too.I am open for suggestions.
