Aye Jim that was a typo. I have too many kits to build yet.

That is all I have done for the last 5 weeks. Play models.

I scored a Gentle Lady on Ebay for $26. Thanks Stehl for sending the link.

I really needed another model. It cane with a 29mz radio.

The wing and tailplane were busted. One of the tips is broken at the diehedral. Easy fix.

I removed the tailplane and skinned it with 1mm balsa after sanding it all true then covered it with polyspan .

It had Solarfilm on the fuse. (Have I ever mentioned that I hate Solarfilm)

Of course I ripped that off and glassed it with 3/4oz and cyano.
3 d primed it and rubbed it down this arvo.

Thenext decision is what colour to paint the fuse.

look at this way phil you are getting it all over with before manilla.

I have a halfbad finished and am keen for a test fly so will still pop out for a fly between showers if it is not to bad. I may just go over to norah head though.

This halfbad is suppose to be my heavy one but it is only 210grams with 3 lots of carbon and heavy lam film over the solar film.

regards,
Arie

You are going to love it Arie.
My light one is only 120 grams. But still penetrates very well.
My next one will be lam film and heavier too.

Hi,

Where was everybody today. it was 10 - 12 on the south face. I flew most of what a took and gave the half bad a workout. It crashes good on the back side. I think for DS they need to be a bit heavier I say around the 400gram mark other than that it goes great for a 26inch wing that weights 210g (7.4oz), it just run out of energy around the back.

It was a bit off angle and shear in the DS zone was rough. I put the banana in the zone got a good tail wobble on every lap and a few tucks as well so stuck to the front side.

Also PM sent about the club
regards,
Arie

They wouldn't let me do any building in Gosford Hospital.

Don't have WiFi either so I couldn't even get on the web.
Must suggest that to the board.

I woke up at 2 am Friday and couldn't breathe. BP 220 /90 Thought I was going to Kark it.
Eventually woke up Sharon when I could get back to the bedroom at 7am..and she rang an ambulance.
Spent all Friday in emergency on oxygen. Chest xrays and ECG's. In the arvo they sent me down to have an ultrasound and discovered I have a dodgy aortic valve. Not life threatening but lovely to listen to according to the Residents and final year students apparently.

I will need surgery to rectify it but not urgent.
Good news the rest of my Heart and lungs are excellent. Once I drained some of the fluid off them.

Yeah Mate Feel a lot better now.
Been crook since Coffs harbour 3 weeks ago and getting worse.
Fluid tablets and oxygen for a few days sorted out the breathing. .
This what they found. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicuspid_aortic_valveJust gotta sort out the crook valve.
Apparently the blood gets pumped out but is leaking back.
But that is not why I went to hospital.


I am home now.
Much to Sharons disgust Hahahahhahahaha I might be able to milk some attention.
See I was sick after all. Not just the Man flu.

Wont stop me sloping or going to Manilla.
Just make sure I don't crash down the hill.
