She is flying again as good as ever, and she looks decent again too. Even added some wing wires this time around. Will try to post some pics soon.

Nice to have a Pico in the air again.

There is an awakening inspiration in the wind. My 2003 stock TM is lying wounded from a hangar accident, and all this talk about this venerated plane is nudging me to resurrect it. Of course I have a NIB TM from many years ago, but my first and original deserves to fly the skies again. I am beginning to feel the need to piece it back together and to soar once again ABOVE 25'.
