Air cylinder

Gordon gets the kewpie prize. The air cylinder will be housed in the hollowed-out nose cone (not yet attached).

Gregg:
Thanks for the kind words. Dan's is just as pretty.

Gordon:
Both do have retracts. We are using the Spring-aire 600 series.

To all:
Estimated AUW will be between 4.75-5.25 lbs. Once they're finished, we have a pretty stringent test program planned before the first flights; thrust and tailpipe velocity, then low and high speed taxi tests. Fortunately, we have a rather large paved flying field on which to perform these tests. We'll be posting more pics as the airframes progress.
