I for one want a winter project - like something that has been crashed and is in the garage taking up space but could fly again with some tlc - just an idea

Ya, hack off the front of the fuse....take out the dead weight that it takes to balance, throw a foamie motor and about 6x5 prop and it would be a blast. Hhmmm I already have an esc in there to reg voltage to the servos, might be an interesting project

The DLG has no weight in it yet and the horizontal stab has popped off a couple times moving it in the small room .... I cut control rod slots in the side of the boom but its ready for someone to take it over the goal line $30

So far the control rods have been helpful in pulling cables back through the 65 Vyper but this plane needs to move out... I love the idea of a motor ... cut off the nose glue in a ply motor mount... 72 omega

LOL! I feel somewhat responsible for these cheapo DLGs...but I still have mine and a set of Diamond 47's. It's definitely going to be assembled this winter, though.

The glider sucked to throw, having messed around with some throwing sports in HS I was always nervous to toss it too hard. It was fun on a bungee high start, so getting a motor to pull it up to height would be cool. Actually if anyone is feeling nostalgic how about a cox .049 engine to pull it as high as it will go
Or maybe a bigfoot tow

If you get nostalgic about that, don't forget the part about getting your fingers all cut up while trying to start one of those .049
