I thought so to the first.

And also, the comparison with the RG-14 is apparent.
Do you have a plane flying with this airfoil yet?

Pismo does. Though it might be a little thicker than standard as the cores were cut for a bagged wing but it's sheeted it in precured glass.

I love the finished product!!!
But I must say your choice of colors as nice as they are (dare I say hippie?!!) don't jibe with the sense of chaos and pucker-butt one will have at the controls.
So pull out the spray gun and give me some black and red on the next one dammit!!!!

Matin will provide directions to valhalla next time......

I like the so called "hippie" colours!

Red and black planes can be seen anywhere.

Jim/Jordan,

I don't know if I mentioned it before but that wing is stupid strong. Just a little crack separation in the paint on the LE/Core boundary. It's landed in one of the hardest branched bushes at Cajon and survived with barely a scratch...TWICE. I really do know how to land. It's just those two times I didn't quite make to the designated landing area (just those two times with THAT plane ) DC812 is probably right though when he said he thought I should probably load up the airframe a bit more. It may not step up to it's potential being as light as I have it now, which is not terribly light tho.

You'll get your chance to enter the contest Mr. Matin! Then we'll see who wins. Those colors are CHAOTIC!

What! ...You think I'M going to put black and red on MY plane?!!.....Are you crazy?!......I can't see my planes as it is.....With my eyesight, I need big areas of white on top for high contrast.......and some soft colors, like green and orange that wouldn't be distracting......!!!!!

Jim and Dan,

You were asking about sealing the bladders the other day. I made a couple last night and snapped a few pics. I haven't watched Adam's vid in ages but I'm pretty sure I do it the same.

I got another fuse laid up this morning.
