Bruce, we do look forward to flying with you two again soon, for sure! The next GFFF is Sunday March 13, less than two weeks away now.

I flew the Warlord several times at the GFFF. But the elevator servo was still giving me intermittant trouble, so the flights were short and less than fun. I need to get that figured out once and for all, even if it means I must replace the brick.

I added four longer carbon rods from the motor mount clear back into the wing to straighten the fuselage (mostly) and to transfer loads into more of the fuselage. It looks OK, but not particularly straight or pretty. I have a second Warlord kit, and I may well end up building it someday with all the lessons I've learned on this first one. But that will be a while yet. Plenty of other projects and Honey-Dos!

We had a great flying time Sunday. I took several photos, but they are still in my camera.

Jim
