Well guys, still running behind but did get the OIII kit out today and took inventory. We can do a full build thread of mine but I'll need Steve to come stay at the house and be official photographer cuz I suck at it.

I'm contemplating building two fuses for my Bird of Time. I'm not telling Shrederman though. I don't want to feel the wrath of Darth Bungee.

Sorry, Steve!

Hey, it's only an electric assist plane. It's for when we can't get to a winch, hi-Start or slope.

Wow, it doesn't take long to get behind on this thread.

Hi Steve, how's it shakin? Actually I think me and my oldest boy may go out tomorrow afternoon to the 407 and get some Hi -Start action, I'll take a camera.

Tim-
We'll hit the field at about noon if the wx is good. I'll have my junky old Hi-Start with me too.

I'm pretty sure I can make it. I don't see why not. I flew my DLG that the local city park today and lift died right around 2:30-3:00. The flock of seagulls (not that horrid 80's band) caught the last thermal out but I couldn't catch them. Just as well, I probably would have lost track of my plane in that gaggle of gulls.

I'd love to shoot Sean's build, erm, just thousands of miles away however. Jeff would be even better with his classic gear, but he ain't within stones throw either. ??
