Hey Brandon,

If you're willing to build, I can give you a Sporter pod to start with. The Sporter pod is for the SuperGee, LightHawk type planes. I'm sure some guys out there would be willing to hook you up with the other parts.
I know where you're coming from, bud. It's not easy for me to get planes to compete and play with either. I'm just glad that some guys out there are cool enough to give me a break.

Soar!

I might just take you up on that, Jun. I love to build, but lamented my "lack of man-cave" situation to you at the contest. I might be able to weasel my way into using an abandoned corner of the shop at work. If I'm lucky I'll even get permission to use the vacuum bagging and foam cutting equipment

Brandon,

I've got some wing cores that you can have. I cut some extras when I built my SuperGee a couple of years ago.

Let me know.

Cool! Good show, Sam!

See, Brandon? All you need now is a boom. I think you can get those for 15bucks or something.

The Sporter pod that have looks hot actually! I won it at one of our contests in San Diego.

Brandon, I have a boom you can have. Hopefully it all fits together without looking too Frankensteinish

Now you need some tails, those I don't have.
