I don't know how to work this image thing properly. I inserted it in the image popup button but can't see it. But there's a link anyhow.

Here's a sloper I put together yesterday. 2mil coro. Has a 4.7oz./sq.ft. wingloading. I would like less for light lift days but I still need to experiment to find what I can get away with to make an all coro light lift plane. My Tx is posing to give a referance to its size.

Jay,

Plans for the wild canard would be great...love to build it.

Duke,

How does your Ridge Runt fly??? I've got one of the Ridge Runt kits but haven't built it yet. Was considering converting it to electric power. Years back I heard that they had CG problems and needed a lot of nose wt. to balance.

The DC-8's great......

Here's my "Deisel Eight." It's a lumbering SOB but still a lot of fun to fly on medium lift days. Rolls are sort of fun as they look so out of place, fast passes are it's forte.

wow eddie, that thing is sweet! is it foam? looks kinda fragile, but i guess you have a nice soft landing area there. btw, that slope certainly doesn't look like it's anywhere Reno... ?
