There's been enough talk about the raised tail not being "useful" as Minicopters removed it from the standard kit and made it an option.
It flys well with or without it.
There is a theory I read about the raised TR having the center of rotation being in the same plane of rotation as the main blades and this is worthwhile from an engineering view...depending on your engineering thoughts and this sounds logical.
I think Peter Maas has some good things to say about it, but your going to have to search for anything he's written about it.
However, I think minicopter know what they are doing so if they removed it as a standard item then it is good without it.
What it does do is get your TR out of the grass and I like that idea as some of my sights have been less then perfect
I just ordered one from Revolution to have if I really feel I need it for the grass stains on my blades, but also at some point in the future I would like to do a scale CH54 and this would make that kit work. Just thought I would buy it now before it goes extinct.
