Subject: Re: New file uploaded ; hernia surgery
Hi John, i dont mind a bit. Infact this is what it is all about... a collaboration! The tests will be interesting to see. Has any one finished one of these wee guys yet? My Dad went through a hernia op a wee while back and yes do take it very easy!!! I suppose you will have lots of time to build many variations of the Lightninbug for testing! Im 24 so im hoping hernias are a long way off for me! > Hi, > Hope Alan doesn't mind that I uploaded this modified optional tail file to the Lightninbug folder.I'm working on the theory that more fin/rudder area gives higher launches, so I increased the size by 10% and moved the hinge line further back to get more fin area for launch stability.Don't know if it will work yet. > Just had a hernia operation yesterday so I'll go through a build-only period.I had the first one in 2003 and was told to refrain from throwing for six months.This time they told me in 3 to 4 weeks I could try light throws.The Laparoscopy surgery seems like a miracle. Anyone else go through this? How long did you wait? > > John
