Like I said, I'm not bothered, angry or emotive in any way but it is kind of insulting when you've put a lot of time and effort into something for it to be labeled as a simple copy based purely on it looking similar but in fact has quite different flying characteristics and performance.

Now I need to go back and sprinkle smileys around my post so you guys dont think I'm being stroppy

I played around with the alula type tips for fun, and its so neat (to me) how the 'lula looks like a bird of prey on the wing. But, now looking at my whole wing, its pretty ugly in its half realized form. no biggie.

bummer that i tried to 'post cure' my wing yesterday with a electric blanket, and the red enamel paint got little bubbles in it. that'll teach me to rush the process. Funny thing is, the cheapie krylon paint did fine.

Tonight I'll play with the fuse some.

BTW, thanks to The Pasty for posting his plan for this fun stuff, and no offense for making it 'girly'!

Finally!

Updated plans

Joan,can you replace the one on the first post with this?

For anyone who's been referencing the old plan I didnt update the span from my very first prototype so its 40" on that plan, this one is the proper 32".

Well done Steve!
I was getting worried there for a moment....
I'm busy reshaping the fuz at the moment and was just wondering about the tail!
I wondered how the wing got longer...

Thanks!

So when are you off?
I suppose we'll manage without you for a while...

Balls... I forgot to do a one piece fuz version.


Headed out this weekend, the winds looking like it going to be on

I'll be around still, the wife will take her laptop

Expect videos of me carving up some welsh shizzle

Here in the states, we prefer our welsh shizzle shredded.

Send vids!

Funny you should say that. I launched mine upside down and toasted the stab i had on at the time! A horse did not like the look of it and put me off while it was bucking and stuff!

Made a new one and moved it forwards to keep it stronger. Pasty was looking at me disappointingly though!
