At this point, I'm not sure if that's feasible yet.
Last year, we literally took planes apart, stuffed in and out of sportube boxes, crammed into vans and every single day. It was a pain...
Yeah, just sand off the extra. It's not that critical, I don't think.
2 planes is the bare minimum, 3 or 4 is good. 5 is the maximum. I think I'll only have 3 planes, maybe 4.

Try to give Skip a little nudge there! ;-)

Yeah Cody and him have let me know about what is available. I could build an orion and have it ready next feb when it stops snowing. I have not thought about it a lot though. So should i make the tail removable?

Making the horizontal stab removable is easy. I wouldn't even consider trying to cut a tail off, reglue it, cut it off again.

Post pictures and ask questions. We can all help.

Two pilots from the K Team, Mike Smith and I, are at the F3B Team Selects. Mike as a pilot; I'm a helper and now an expert button pusher!!! LOL!
This F3B is interesting stuff. I just wanna grab one of the transmitters and start doing those highspeed dives, too!

Full day guided fly fishing trip on private water-either on the culebra ,San Luis ,co or the holy water, Taos ,nm
All equipment provided except waders(available for rent )
Spend a day learning and catching trout with me(dates are flexible ,approximately June/ July would be a great time)$ 450 value

Also, 1-hand made obsidian Clovis knife .
Made out of beautiful ,translucent black obsidian. And knapped with aboriginal tools just like they did 11,000 years ago- this thing is nice and cuts meat like nobody's bisness $120 value

Tom, that is sweet! Thank you so much. If you have links to your website, or anything you'd like us to use on our website, please get the info to either myself or Charlie. We'll get you up on the Team website. Those are great prizes, and if the winner him or herself may not be up for it, it would be perfect for that relative that loves to fish. Thanks again.

Mike

Your welcome !
I'm gettin a website this winter I hope,sorry I'm kinda (very) behind the times.
And definatly this prize could be for friend or family member of winner!
I can customize the trip to match anyone's needs from a first timer to long time flyfisher.i will gladly take 2-anglers on this trip .
Folks who areInterested should plan on Taos ,nm as the meeting place
Also nm fishing lic required(1-day out of state lic is 10 dollers /person
Lunch can be provided as well
I guess the only downside is being stuck with me on the river all day

Do you bring your coeds?

Seems to be a lot of interest in fly fishing in the mountain states DLG crowd, & I bet there would be interest from some of the eastern people if the timing could be linked to one of the Blue Skies events!
