HI David

Love the idea of the 'rotating pilot' to hold the back of the wing down.

The 'Erie etc' is sort of half-built, sitting on a shelf. Not my normal self these days, I'm afraid, something like that model should have taken me about two weeks once I got the plan bits printed out... Another snag is that a model like that is for floating around on nice calm days. Not something you get many of in Chicago.

Am presently building a large scale model of the 'Kaos' pattern ship for electric power, as that will be much better in 'normal' Chicago winds, but will do something to the Erie Etc next, honest.
