It's getting closer! Only a few hours to go!

I sure hope that I haven't forgotten to pack anything. Of course, once I'm a couple hundred miles away I'll probably realize that I should have brought that thingamajig.

I'll be at Donner Memorial State Park. I think I need to get the obligatory T-shirt:

Last night I finally got bored stepping around my "fleet", and built something to get them out of my hair (or into?). I dug out the studfinder, found some studs, drilled four pilot holes, screwed in four large mug hooks, and strung a pair of plastic coated garden wires across the dining room. Now the planes are hanging above, and out of the way. I discovered that the wings don't fit well, but at least they stack well, so they're tucked in a corner. The fuses are up and out of the way.


BTW, has anyone ever heard of a Valencia? It's a low wing motor plane-- I got most of one, missing the H stab (the real mystery is that I have the elevator, but no stab) and canopy, and in desperate need of a new motor mount.

ETA: here's some pictures I found. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=824086 Apparently it's a 15-20 year old motor glider. Nice! Gonna be tough to get the canopy.
