My question is mainly for my fellow Futaba users. I've always used the thin blue heat shrink sleeves for my antenna tubes. Should I cut the ends of these plastic tubes so the ends of my antennas stick out or not worry about it?
I'll hop on that "always wanted one" train too. My first gasser was almost a Redwing Yak-55, those guys were willing to drop ship from china to me... ended up with an AJSlick. At any rate, the Yak-55 is one cool bird.
Thanks @AKNick. . . . .I could not locate anything in the AMA safety code or Handbook about any sort of ignition kill. This may be an event/club related stipulation.
edit: above 55lbs you need both.
