This being my first blog entry, I'm not really sure what to do. I am addicted to sailplanes, this season with great reluctance I cut the nose off my Riser 100 and put a motor on it. I did this so as to be able to fly at the local RC feild without a high start. Gotta say I was pleasantly impressed at the preformance of my glider despite the motor on the front. The plane came in at 64 oz, so not bad with the motor/battery. I am in the finishing stages of a Great Planes Spectra, this should be a great flyer, made major changes to the tail, and put a rimfire .10 up front.
The most exciting part is I found a place not far from my house that has 2 and a 1/2 soccer feilds end to end that are arely used, building a 2m Riser next, no motor, just high start and sail !!!!!!!
Always room for one more!
I am basically addicted to Soaring, I love gliders and everything about them.

Building gliders the old school way, balsa wood and elbow grease! Love the smell of sawdust in the morning.
