    Iíve used tail Stands on 2-33 gliders parked outside lots of times. Decrease AOA and lots less lift. Also do 4 point tie down, pretty easy when you have the release hook on the nose!

    For anything that is 2D, I agree, make it out of Alcoaís 2024-T3. Anything that has compound curves, itís a lot easier to make it from 3003.
