Adding a couple of pics of my just finished Coyote.
I got this a few years ago from my Dad. He got it from the wife of a guy who lived and flew it in Santa Barbara. That's about all I know.
Mods include JR ds368 Servos buried in wings and elevator, added a few inches to the length and widened the ailerons and got rid of the stick pushrod to the elevator by using a golden rod embedded in expanding insulation foam. Seems to have worked out pretty good. I am going to do the same thing for my next project, a Speedo first version.

Fred took a pic of the planes I took out to the Nipomo Mesa slope. I thought it was kinda funny they are all v-tails.
Front is a Renny 2. left middle is a Talon. Right middle is a Mach Dart. Back left is a heavily modified Ascent. Back right is a Sharon Pro.
Flew all Including an Alula, but the Talon and Mach Dart stayed down today.
Well, had a great weekend out there. Flew with my ol buddies and met a few new ones too!
