The scale goes nuts, keeps running up and down, won't tare, works great with anything but carbon fiber? Thought if anyone would know, it would be you... Even if I put a piece of paper between the scale plate (metal) & carbon it still won't measure it?

Lööks most interesting Ihava, what a project!! looking forward to reading more, cheers! - no idea about the scale anomaly, clearly electrical related somehow?

Ok, been in the new house 5 days now and we are slowly getting organised, the double garage downstairs will make a great workshop, pics later. I hope to open the Sky Bench B-100 short kit this week sometime, it arrived middle of last week thanks Ray! but the mancave is far from being able to produce woodies yet, let alone crunchie fitouts.

Ciao,

Well Guys and Gal...

It seems that I've been caught up in a situation out here that is going to require my undivided attention for quite some time. turns out that my now EX-boss is on his way to jail on several different charges ranging from Elder Abuse to grand theft auto. As such I'm working with the local cops and adult protective services to help nail the guy to the wall. If we are lucky, it will be many MANY years before he sees the light of day again. Rest assured that I was not involved in any way other than to help nail the guy.

This situation may also end up costing me my relationship with my girlfriend but if she doesn't understand my need to help in this, then we were not meant to be together anyway.

As such my time is going to all be taken up with this situation and doing my best to see to it that this guy fries for his actions. I will try to pop in from time to time as I can but I won't be around nearly as much as usual. It's going to take some time for things to get back to normal but when they do you can all rest assured that I shall return to this craziness we call home.

In the meantime... Everyone stay out of trouble and do all the building you can since I'm not going to be able to. See you all at some time in the future.

Jeff

Jeff, if she doesn't understand then she's not worth keeping anyhow. Hopefully she does.

Go pin that scumbags nuts to the wall with a rough hewn iron nail!

Totally drowns out my BoT maiden report.

Nahhh, you don't wanna hear it anyways. It didn't go we'll.





















OK, twist my arm, why don't ya.

The Bird went straight up the winch, tap tap tappity tap, and came off the hook beautifully. It handled very well in the gusts, and I was starting to get to know her a bit, when the time came to land.

Darn. Downwind. Leg. I made a panic turn in the middle of the DWL, rolled to 90 degrees and tip-stalled, straight in. The wing center section has a good sized piece removed, and now I have an appointment with some epoxy, glass and monokote. it'll be better than new when I'm done with it.

Wha? As the world turns, eh Jeff. The universe can twist & turn in a hurry. One day your on top and the next you, "can't even see it from here!" I was hoping you were out landscaping the new runway for the BBB!! Ya, proly didn't think you were moving to AZ to be a CSI guy. Good luck "DEPUTY JEFF."



* sorry to hear of your "landing" Katie. I blame it on the "Coyote." He's the one who started ALL THIS!

As one wisecrack said, all I did was find the weak spot on the airframe. Now I gotta make it stronger.

See ya this evening, I hope, Al? We're in our way now, gift exchange goodies in hand.

Heh. I'm not sure a couple guys at the field understood why I was laughing about the crash. Heh. You GOTTA have a sense of humor about it, otherwise you'd go crazy.
