G'day just a quick one , will a shorter fuselage affect my ability to glide and and keep that glide with a occasional pump push or is it just all bonus of tighter turning and the same glide lengths cheers

I am on the short Armstrong fuse, 60 I think. It feels better to pump than the long Axis one I had. Much more reactive.

Shorter fuse (everything else being the same) should equal tighter turns at the cost of less pitch stability. Negligible effect on glide/ drag.
