Repaired my fuse after the dead battery launch. Epoxy is curing and should be ready to fly on Wednesday. Swapping out the NiMh with a 1 cell lipo. Thankfully I have a back up set of wings to fly with until I repair the originals. I was really liking the way it was flying until I launched with it with the dead battery and watched gravity and the sudden stop take its toll.

Hi Mr. Traian,

I've seen Merkin 77's ship and wonder how do I get one of these. Don't get much response from a Google search. Thanks

Hi Tony,

Let me know if you need help. I can call Traian if he does not get back to you in the next few days.

Traian's Evolution 3 was involved in a midair yesterday at our club field and he may have been busy today repairing it.

I was flying during the mid air and looking in another direction. It was so loud I thought a tree limb had snapped.
Considering how hard they hit, damage to Traian's wing wasn't bad at all and very repairable.

The sound of carbon clashing in a midair never ceases to amaze me. Hope to see all involved airborne again soon.

That was one of my early designed wings. I have some spears in the shop that I will not sell. I will add a launch blade to one of those and put the plane back in the air. I have just discovered the value in having identical paint job on spare planes. That way you can go fly no problem just swap the bad part to the new one and you are back in business. Or just simply switch top the backup plane. If you midair the other one then you can still swap parts between the two planes as long as you did not damage identical parts .
The damage was in part that I was going pretty fast and was trying to trim the Cruise Mode at the time and it was a high rate of speed head on with another plane. Someone thought a tree branch broke. I saved the plane and managed to lad it normally. I will make another wing in the mold. It will take me more time that try to repair this one however I do not feel I want to repair it. It must be nice to have your own molds.

If you gentleman are interested in one send me a PM please.

Hi Rich,

So far no luck from Traian. How do you buy one of the Evolutions? Can it be done on the web?
Thanks

Shoot him a PM. He was talking about ordering more materials this week. Might take a few weeks to get the carbon from Germany. He doesn't have a website.
