Just finished up the repairs on the 70 slick. She has a bit more epoxy and some fiberglass cloth added in a few places. The rocks reaked havoc on the bottom of the fuse in a few places so some balsa needed patching up. I also took out the smoke pump. I think we are going to end up putting it in my friend Brigg's 50cc plane. We are hoping it will end up working out a lot better there.

I went with steel bolts this time for better or worse. I also went with larger wheels but I hate them fyi. The LHS didn't have any decent ones and these ones feel pretty flimsy and the foam tires squish down way too easy. I went with a 19x8 xoar this time... it was in stock. I'll miss the protek 20x8 that was a match made in heaven but the 19x8 was also pretty nice when I was using it before. Looking for some flights soon... possibly Monday.
