Adaptable ballast spreadsheets, using array formulae

We F3X pilots love ballast - it makes our models fly faster. The problem is knowing how much to add, and how to minimise any shift in the centre of gravity. One option is to compare different ballast combinations, using a CG gauge. However this can be time consuming and tedious especially with complex ballast configurations. It's so much easier with a spreadsheet!

Photo magic at the Welsh Open

Here's a publicity shot by MKS, using two of my images. It shows Joel West winning the recent Welsh Open. I think their graphic designer has done a rather nice job!
