Twisty wings over Torrey build queue

Being a TWF addict I feel the need to build as many planes as possible for the next TWF over Torrey.

Here I go!

I am giving an open invitation to any one wanting to build on Sat the 9th and Sat the 16th.
You are welcome to come by and build.
Do you need cams? got them.
Do you need a hand or another eye on something come on by.

Building has begun.

Canopy for the hybrid rotor is "cooking".
Next I think I am going to make these wings I got froma friend (Ward) a few years ago into Turbo wings. 52"ws Turbo she should really roll quick!

The Jester is a plane my friend Mike has just come out with, this is the 3rd or 4th fuse out of the mold, I think I am going to put some hollow molded shrike wings on it.

Nice looking wings for your Turbo, Oran

I can use a couple sets of Shrike cams and maybe one of your 'tinted' fuselages

.
I did some thing and I may have to back off such an ambishious feat as to make 6 planes in the time allowed so I am going to make the Turbo then the Contender and inbetween make flyable ALL the other planes I have laying around.


I get scraps of carbon from work and found 2 that were big enough for a Shrike fuse and made this yesterday.

I will be building today so if your in the area stop on by.

Kevlar.

The Turbo is stilkl curing with the 5200.

I got the Vmax flying and she ripped it up down at Dave's today.
I really like the way she flew.

Found a set of contender wings in the shed so that might be next.

Update:
Little got done during the week (this work thing really is creeping into my build time).
Nsp Snipe ready to fly.
Turbo just needs an elevator pushrod (making my son do it)
Contender needs pushrods and the tails built (can't make him do it)

here are some pics.
