I am going to put HS-85's in mine.

Seriously considering flaps.

Seriously considering glassing it too.

All of the thorns require a little bit of elbow grease - some require more than others. Remember that they are seconds.

Remember also that they are great fliers - particularly in rough air - and extremely tough. Which means that you shouldn't worry about buying or making making them perfect, because they're going to take a lot of beating (and look very very worn) before they'll break ... so dont be too precious about them from the start.

I suggest a thorn-fest ... say in 2 months time, to give everyone enough time to build, maiden, replace wing bolts, break, re-glue, replace wing bolts, break etc ... and by then they'll all look the same and fly great!

Cheers

Roger.

How about some man on man thorny racing. Imagine the sound of all that wood banging together.

Let me know if you're heading for Hollowback or Red Rock I can usually make those at short notice.
