My one and only glider flight was in a Blanik L-13 (I was a lot lighter then.....).

Has the joiner bar turned up yet Shane?

Not much progress to report although i did get the sheeting on the centre section.Then i glued the centre section into the fuz all nice and straight.Tonight i will go and lay up another joiner bar tube and start to get the wing panels ready for the joiner tube to be installed.

Ive been trying to nut out the tailplane attachment.First idea was to go with plugin tail halves.But im leaning towards a one peice diheaderal with a dowel to locate the front of the tail and a singal bolt at the rear of the tailplane.This would be able to slide in for the back and under the rudder.This way you ca either run a servo in each half of the tail or a y pushrod with internal torque rod in each elevator.

Any ideas guys
