Yeah man, cheers for that. It is in the build queue. Put some bog on it before leaving for work tonight. Just need to work the wing seat and sand and paint it up

I have used an hand trolley for luggage, which I had laying around for years, similar to this one in the pic.
Did just cut off the handles and screwed it to the bottom of the box Mick.

none ready at the moment, but 5 on the go, with my flying I will need all I can get.

The list should be Tom Cat, Minivec, Swift, 2x AFP60, zipper, mauler plank, manawatu mauler and Mod JW.

Hey Alex, I was just driving along had a thought about RC gliders and the NZ week ... I know, weird and I can't explain why that subject crossed my mind. Totally random but there you go.

ANYWAY,

my thought was: what about running an F3F event while all the guys are over there? I was daydreaming about how us Qld guys are really keen, but we don't have a good site, and even if we did it's so hard to get everything coming together ... people, weather, etc. But you have so many good sites ... good chance you'd have a really good event one day during the DS week. I'm sure everyone would be keen, even if it's a case of "fly what you've got" for fun. And with you and Joe W, and probably several others who have the planes and the skills, the newbies would get a demo of how it would be done.

Hope to have my models ready by the end of the weekend (long weekend here in Melbourne. With a few maidens in NZ)

So far the list is;
Bat
Tipan (ready for maiden)
Samurai (ready for maiden)
Parkjet
2m Omega, hotliner
Reverb (under repair and likely going to maiden in NZ as I don't want it broken again)
Speedo (on the building table and maiden in NZ as I won't get to the slope between now and then)

DS man on man racing could be fun too. More gliders over the back = more fun
