Pat Tritle/Dare Designs - Driggs Skylark

Well guys, my Curtiss Robin pretty much has no more balsa to glue and I gotta be gluing a part A onto part B somewhere so I am going to start the Driggs Skylark.

Two things I want to do, after reading so much good stuff about them here, is to build a Pat Tritle design and a Peter Rake design. I have a couple kits from both, I just need less work and more hobby time. More skill wouldn't hurt, but there is a lot to be learned from you guys here on rcgroups. Thanks for that!

I have been storing this one for a little while to gain some building skills because, not only am I a little nervous with wings, but I am really nervous with two wings. This will be my first bipe of any size.

The Guts -
Motor - E-flite 370
ESC/BEC - HURC 18A
Battery - Turnigy 2S 500mAh
Servos - Turnigy TGY-1440A 4.4g
Receiver - Power Up RD610 2.4GHz DSM2 & DSMX Compatible 6 Ch.
Radio - Spektrum DX5e
Covering - Good ole' tissue and dope (it's all I know how to do...).

Dang, this is a nice kit. Perfect laser cutting. I hope I can do it justice.

I will post some pics tomorrow as I smear some glue on balsa.

Thanks fer lookin'

Ted
