I spent the morning sorting wing cores.
18 sets of standard Shrike wing cores.
15 sets of experiential wing cores ranging from stock Spyder cores to wide cord Shrike wings and some high and low aspect cores all with the 6062 8% airfoil.

Cams

Oran, I have the cams programmed....I'll have them done early next week. They'll be made of black 1/8" G10.

What size screw will you be needing for the push rods?

Oran, I am declaring myself in for sure. It will be a quick trip for me probably, I will call you to work out more details.

Ward, I will PM you about some things.

How about tomorrow?

I am going to be working on the jigs so to have you come by in the morning would be no problem.... that is until the wind kicks up.

Man I thought more guys would jump on this. An opportunity to share ideas, techniques, build some cool stuff, in my case learn, and do, a lot of things I have wanted to try for a long time, and food thrown in to boot!

Oran I would like to reserve some of the hi aspect wings if you think they will work for the Spyder, or the Shrike for that matter. I have some stock Spyder cores I would like to lay up while there too if I can.

I may even be able to bring another vac pump Oran if you have the other stuff, I likely will not.

Not sure how many guys Oran have signed up, I don't think its 20, but when I saw that pile of wing cores, WOW!

Like I said, I am in, I even went to the trouble to clear it with my wife! No easy thing.

Jim,

For the official party I am supplying the stock wing cores after that .....(we can talk).

When do you think you can come down, I know it's going to be an all day trip. Perhaps you could plan on staying over in the 3rd. bedroom?

Yeah I went to call and realized my cell was dead. I would be very greatful to stay in your spare room. I promised Jamie I would keep it reasonable.

I think it may require two trips to see you. I plan on being there for the build day, but I can help with whatever you need instead of focusing on a specific build. Whatever works.

The other day, not sure, hopefully in between. If I take a Friday off maybe I can bring the wife and kids down on a Thursday night and we can motel it, they are happy if there is a pool and a chance to just kick it. That would give me some of a Friday and some of a Saturday.

Like you said, we will talk. I will call tomorrow, probably after 12ish.

I need a second set of eyes today, I am making the jig to put the holes in the fuse and I need someone to come by and check my work.
I know it sounds silly but every time I do this it seems to be off by just a hair.

I cut the ejector pins yesterday with the help of Gary and Daryl, I started tapping the servo trays and just finished.... my hands hurt.

Shoot me a PM if you can come by and help.

Trimming the wing core tips.

I wanted a repeatable way of making them all the same so I came up with this idea.

Cut the shape you want, put some 1/64 ply on the ends and they will all be the same....

Great talking as usual. Sorry I had to cut it short, I probably need a new battery and we don't have a house phone.

I will figure out a date that works for the family and come down ahead for a day to see where I can join in and help Oran.
