Well, the Marauder situation is that I framed up two at the same time, one new one for me and one for my boss. My old one finally bit the dust when some previous damage reared it's ugly head on a hard launch (flutter at an unexpected time). I can't show up at the field with my new one without his being RTF. He's been patient but I'm a year behind so I guess I gotta finish them.

I may put the SGP up for sale since I just can't get enthusiastic about it.

I KNOW the Marauders will fly fantastically. No complaints about the Marauder, it penetrates wind surprisingly well considering the airfoil and launches are a thing to behold. And that's stock, no fancy CF added, no up-sizing shear webs, it just goes on step and climbs like a stripe- ape.

I just think, with the ideas that I have, that the OIII can hurt some moldy flyers feelings. I need to get it done and fly at the next Mid-South Nats. I did pretty well (2nd place) in my class with a ratty moldie. I can't imagine that the OIII built right can't equal that dog I was flying last April.
