Nice - but get some decent tails from Brian Padovini. The stock tails are really crappy. Even old Blaster tails would be better.

I didn't bother using the wing joining jig. Just glued 'em together like any solid-core DLG. You can take a look at the one I gave Dana (Hohokam).

I've got a fresh Concept vertical to put on it. IDK what to do about the horizontal, yet. Still haven't decided on servo's, either. I'd like to do top-drive, but don't know which servos I'm gonna use yet.

The concept vert was supposed to go on the concept, but I can't see putting a fresh tail on a plane I'm afraid to throw when anybody else is around.

Definitely not complaining!

I had a great time, and I think I am launching much better than the past. Even had two planes, so when the LH wing gave up I flew the Vandal.

Anyway Greg needs some fodder if he is going to make 2015!

I had left the SkyRider later, and hit the jam right before the Central AZ College exit. I took that and did a bypass, coming back to I-10 at 587 exit. Don't know if it saved any time, but found a place to pee!

Yeah, but with over 75% of the top score. We need to practice together one day, maybe at the Surprise field, but I won't have much time before the end of September.

I use this to reinforce the panel-joint:

Never had a problem. Don't even bother injecting glue into the joint, there's only foam. You need to bond the skins together, and also make them stick to the foam, so use only laminating epoxy.

Results are posted on the BTH thread. We all missed you and Tim, and hope to see you again with those spankin' new Predators. Let Dana or myself know if you need materials and help to build the thing - don't follow the instructions, even if you speak or read Taiwanenglish! Just copy the one dana has and you'll have a good plane. Then start saving for some decent tailfeathers - the kit items are junk, but will do initially.

Are you thinking of Tucson or Phoenix? I don't have time, but if you don't mind traveling to northwest PHX, then contact dbone or proppy jon and see what they're up to.
