What's Joe's username?

I got a CNC machine up and running (well, I got it moving). Cutting area is ~18"x36". Would like some hints and tips from him if possible.

Haven't been flying much with the arrival of baby #2 a few weeks ago.

I think Joe is 'Bluebird' or something like that. He rarely comes on here, tho.

Hey Brian, remember "da Gay Blade Dancer"? I finally decided what to do with it. Here's what I came up with. A quick and dirty build today but it flies great.

The fuselage on mine is actually from one of the small styrofoam chuck gliders I used to drop from my slowstick.
You guys can call it ugly all you want, but I like the price of it.

First flight was extremely twitchy and I thought it was because of the over-sized elevons. I added some weight to the nose and it smoothed things out so I guess it was just tail heavy.
