I guess a short update on what I've been doing to the Realflight Clipper. I took some time this morning and reworked the physics to get rid of the CG Adjustment setting by adding a Mass to the front of the Fuselage with the weight needed to balance it. The added weight increased the wing loading to 29.5 oz. with a total weight of 120.5 lbs. I also moved the CG back about 2 inches which improved the flying a bit. I also upped the point where the differential engine control is disabled to 25% of total throttle. That allows you to have a bit more speed when you're taxing and still have good steering control. So I guess this weekend it will finally get released.
