Yes, unless you get a flat one. Kills all the glide.

How stable is the Barsby RR? Same as any other?

I haven't thrown any myself but allegedly they're more stable and domey.

I haven’t thrown any other roadrunners in a long time but it’s definitely not as understable as the numbers suggest. I would put it at -2/1

I'd agree, It's really nice actually. Thrown with good power on a slight hyzer it's a laser beam.

-2/1 seems right. The glide seems higher than a 5.

Anyone compare the 2018 Barsby tour series to the 2019 stock stamp RRs? I have a couple 2018s I really like and I'm wondering if I should try out the new ones.

I never clicked with the sidewinder. I really have to crank on a star sidewinder to get it to turn much, but then it dumps pretty hard. A champ sidewinder flies like a Thunderbird when there's no wind, but even a slight headwind makes it flip and never come back.

Definitely think the roadrunner is more predictable for me. A champ roadrunner reliably has some turn and some fade but it's pretty neutral and easy to power down, whereas a star is very understandable but controllable.

I've thought about getting a Roadrunner but I already have a Leo3. Sounds like the same thing if it's -2/1.

It’s definitely less stable and faster than a leo3
