I just finished a Leadfeather Yak build. I used Dollar Tree foam and 3M packing tape and constructed it like an Experimental Airlines plane. I made it for indoor flying but slim foam and slick finish made it more of an outdoor bird.

Now I just need to learn to fly.

Leadfeather Yak - slim DTF build (1 min 16 sec)


Flown at Magnuson park. The geese didn't seem to mind.

2 pm Saturday Dec 8. Starts at MARCS for a few quick 'chillin' flights, then we head out for drinks and early dinner, then followed by Barn Owls indoor fly at 6 pm Magnuson Park. Then dancing and clubbing in belltown. Ok not really the last part.

Everyone bring a <$20 gift for the Marcotics gift exchange.

Who's in?
Saturday works for me, count me in. All gifts should be RC centric, (no stuffed rabbits )

There won't be any selling off of the Raven. It was a Christmas present from Deanna.

Harv is selling his RTF Raven for a great price.

Cry you are getting the balancing act of marriage down pat! There is no dog house for you in the near future. Well played sir.

Ask me sometime about a shirt that I gave to Goodwill without thinking. Dam I was nearly homeless for trying to help out the homeless!

A Kirby is a damn nice unit. It still doesn't work as a gift though. Glad you made it through OK.
