    I went the route of putting the rudder behind the stab on my Satellite 450.
    I’m using a KB 3.5 and it moves but I’m sure I need to cut down the rudder area even more than I did. It wastes too much time in a shallow climb to the right before going up. Anyone with experience on how much area to have behind the stab? I want it to go up like Bob and Billy Hunter’s but without the tight keying they needed on the stab to keep the rudder from moving.

    This may be an oversimplification, but have you ever considered launching it straight up?

    Somewhere in the pictures on the NFFS site is a shot of Steve Bruno launching his T-Bird thusly. If these are not launched, they too spend a fair amount of time going to the left before the nose comes up.


    Just watch Bob Hanford. His goes preety straight up!
