Subject: Re: Cruciform Tail boom length?
That adds about two inches to the boom which is about right for SAL. Are you adding an extra #3 rib to increase the wingspan to 34.5 inches? It's a mod that improves the glide and float. See message #202 and 436 for instructions on building the extended wing. Message #212 has my recommendation for the boom.
