Didn't know they made Nitro powered gliders.
Could it be a dlg Blaster?

Gabby-E, if you're going to be picky. Could I have a Roy Rogers, instead?

Yup It's Gabby Hayes!

Yup, I got me a Gabby coming!

Everytime I read about the Gabby sailplane, the real Gabby Hayes comes into my mind. He was Roy Rogers sidekick and one great guy.

http://www.surfnetinc.com/chuck/pals-gh.htm

So I got me an E-Gabby coming. My sidekick John and I will be building the thing. My goal is a fast thermal ship. It should be here right after NEAT. If NEAT is that big electric meet up in the North East.

So let the Gabby Build Thread Begin!!!

(yes, I do have a plane problem. It can only be cured by buying another plane. )

Looks like a very nice plane (again!) Don! Drela foils, molded wing, full span flaperons or ailerons and flaps..... I'm glad you won't be winching this one

Hey, it doesn't use Multiplex 6 pin plugs does it?? If it does, we'll outsource the soldering to Tony....a bottle of Grey Goose and he'll solder from sun-up to sun-down.....

Gabby Decals

While I'm waiting on the Fed Ex man to bring me my Gabby....

I'm working on the decals that will be on the wings.

I put them on the old broken Hawk wing just to see what they would look like.
