What a day. Started out a tick windy all day for foamies but ended up nice and calm. I was at the AMA fun fly not 20 minutes away. Well I and a bunch of us got out the foamies and took over the sky's for the last hour and a half of the day. Best of all I had my 30", now 4oz all up ewo extra out with the Horizon Cyclone 16 gram BL on it. I had the intress of world champ Jason Shulman cause of the size and weight. So I let him put it thru its paces. Yep ewo Jason loved your Extra. I could not beleive how super it flew in his hands. He did everything with it that he was doing with the 1/3 Yak he was flying. In his words he loved it.

WOW! It ain't even my plane and to have world champ Jason Shulman put it through it's paces made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Now a vid of that would have been awsome. I hope ewo's sitting down when he reads that post Howard.

Ok so now that we have the "free Plans" List stuck up and running and a few other things done, I'm back on my Full fuse version of ewo's extra........fuse is together.....and I am working on the wing right now (raining outside so no early morning flying) I used the folded edge of ff for the leading edge and am in the process of gluing it together.........I'll have some pic's a tad latter..........

And this is where I ended up with it today.............not to shabby for just using ewo's profile plans....thanks bud. now to get the gear together and see what motor I gonna have to use........right now the airframe less motor mount stuff weighs 7.5 ounces. Oh yeah the beer can was just for size comparison (I do not condone drinking, but hey I'm only human).

I spent the weekend working on my trucks. Boy i tell you what, I bought 100,000 mile plugs last time i tuned up my ranger, only got 98,000 out of them. what a rip

also had to put a water pump in the blazer, Hope i dont ever have to do that again
that stinkin screw on fan threw me for a loop.

anyways
let us know how she does for you.
Kinda been scratchin my head wondering what to do next.
I think you made my mind up for me But i will be doing it just a tad differently

Oh and is the white foam Cellfoam 88?
I do like that stuff


Thanks
