The Bug is so light, the floors won't be a any more a problem than the ground. You'll probably catch it most times anyways - indoors is good for catching practice. I've flown mine in the Dome several times. On a hard side-arm launch in dead air I was getting 30 second flights. What club is it? Where do they fly? -PJ On Fri, Feb 29, 2008 at 8:59 AM, dr56yhn <dr56yhn@...> wrote: > > > > > So I came upon this group while I was looking for a small HLG to use > indoors during the very cold winter months here in Minnesota.
