E-starter blues...

Well, got it in the air again today, after a few repairs from the last flight. Did not stay up long, the cowling was rubbing, and wind was a tad too high. After my patented "Ruptured Duck" landing, we discovered the wing had a 5" crack in the top, and after much discussion, and a few smokes, decided that the droops and dihedral HAD to go.

The wing is now in 2 pieces, awaiting epoxy and cf tubes. Hope to be airborne next weekend....if not, a new Formosa is on the way, and I will start working that one up with the guts from the e-starter...
