Old plane, old man, new home for the plane.
Will probably recover and get it back in the air.

Wind needs to be coming up the river for some good flying. Large landing zone atop the A.

Mog wing is ready for covering after one layer of extreme tape. My friend in the tree is saying his prayers (he is wanting me to get this plane done so he can have a mog lunch).

Cut Elevons down and attached 3" to each wing tip and glued 3/32 ply to each tip. This should make for a faster Mog in the turns, maybe less flutter at speed.

Covering removed, now to smooth the wing out, harden up the tips and recover.

Picked up another MOG, thanks Matter_Daddy, I will probably take it down and recover the wing and do a little work on the tail. This one is at 1.39 lb. and my old one is at 1.42 lb.
Did a little work on the Gulp wing tip, been slow going, working out of town.

Get er done ya poke.

Took me 7 hr 25 min. to build, came in at 11.5 oz.
I never could figure out what way to put the wing tips on. I think as long as they match you should be ok.

Zagi THL-- I have 5 hr. into this one, should be finished in about 1 more hr.
This plane will get me flying at Cape Blanco when the wind is at 5 mph.

Zagi is started and should be finished in a week so I can start on the Gulp, sorry Steve the Zagi was on the bench first.
Runway will be dirt this year and if I can get some more dirt to level it out I hope to plant the grass in the fall.

I have not come in contact with balsa, foam,or transmitter in over 145 days. Work and home projects have been keeping me tied up for to long. Will get back at it soon, pushed the AR-1 aside and will start on the Zage for light wind. I tried to get my hands on another Electron 60 but they do not make them any more, Why? So I sent off for a Gulp DS II hope to have the Zage done before it arrives.

Marcus did a good job on his wood shop project. Think I need him to finish my wing tips.
Bathroom is moving along with the floor in and sheet rock up.
