Time to go to harbor freight. They have a digital scale for around $15.

What's on your menu for building and do you cut your own cores?

I have been cutting my own cores. I've got two Mystics on the bench right now being finished. One is for a friend, the other will be my light layup. I've got some Samurai carbon that'll be used for two Dbox Mystics next - one for me and one for this same friend (he actually paid for the fabric). I've had that stuff for a while and it's going to get used before the new carbon. Still not certain what I'm going to do with the new carbon. I'm working on a new airfoil series and may use it for the prototype wing. If it takes too long to get the design ready I'm tempted to just build a Zone V2 2P wing. Or maybe I'll make a full carbon Mystic. It's a tough decision. I've got more carbon on the way for some pods and booms.

Sam, the scale I ordered is half the price as the HF one and just as good. I did a fair bit of shopping around. I just didn't anticipate it taking 3 weeks to get here.

That is really neat, Brandon. I am looking forward to seeing your new light layup. The one you flew at Barns was unbelievable how it just hung in the air.

I have a repair I am in a quandary about. In flying my TopSky I managed to get the aileron to begin separating from the wing. I am just wondering what method you would suggest to re-attach the aileron?

JonF, Adrian, and JonL We are rooting for you guys. You haven't missed anything here at home. Yesterday was a nice day in the low 20s with sunshine. Today we are starting off with hoarfrost (I almost spelled it with a "w") and it will be 12 degrees by 9am.

Go Team Utah!!!
