In Topic: Tube or Strip???

OK, so is there a specific thread type that is used when sewing the different colors together or just your standard thread?

So do you all reccomend cuttting the available purcahsed  2" wide down to 1" and if so would one assume that if you did cut it down do you cut it wide enough to allow for a folded over hemm seam on each side that should be sewn? (to prevent fraying after the width is narrowed down)

What type of thread is used to sew the different lengths of colors together, say if your making your own 50-100' tails in several different colors?

I found some 2" wide icarex, would that be too wide I wonder? If not what exactly is this " hot cut" method consist of?

I figured the tubes would create too much drag. Where does one find the strips or material that you speak of? As I mentioned, I would prefer to just purchase the tail(s) ready to attach n fly. Thanks

Starting up high is exactly where I am having the issue of not being able to slow the decent down in order to transition into a full hover. I have been forcing myself to land inverted only to practice low inverted hovering. For the record I am flying with a purpose and not just flying around, that gets old really fast for me. I have no issues with flying time when I can get it. Thanks for the help! Lom
