that reminds me Glen, I will need some cut for my old Learjet fuse one day.........maybe in time for next manilla......as if I'll have it done by then!!

We (as in you ) need to nut out an appropriate airfoil so I can form it into the plug as it has regular 70's glo powered foil shape in the fuse, I.E thicker than a thick thing. I'm thinking a piece to match the original with the new foil cutout so I can glue it to the original wing mount then take a mould off the whole fuse.

I'm thinking of a fast wing (as per full size) with scale flaps and maybe something that would respond well to EDF power later on.

trub,
what a cool video.. very sharp image resolution, very stable..Thanks, Obviously that site is beautiful but missing two key things.. sheep, and a nice 12mph wind for sloping,

In the winter apparently they get a lot of avalanches..huh?

When it comes to the perfect site Jim, I'd pick a road to the top over a good looking sheep any day

Hi Steve

Have you had time to sort out dates for next years pilgrimage?

Is it likely to be 16 to 22 or 23 to 29?

The interest is growing from what I hear having just been to a 2metre contest at Heathcoat last weekend.

Once we needed a peg to fly, a nice problem to have would be a peg to get a standing flying spot on the mount. Just dreaming.

Cheers John Qugley
