I got your E-mail and the file opened up fine. No errors like before which is very good. I'll be replying to your e-mail directly today.

Yeah, the laser moves pretty good thru depron but not as fast as most may think(about 3" per second) . I have developed a process of speeds,power settings, and a few tricks that work really well.

Sean, a great story all around!

Your friend was not hurt, you got up in the middle of the night to help free his airboat and clean up the mess, and your friend paid for the damage to that fence!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, here is my thousand words. Not quite ready for flight but very close.

OOhhhhh, Ahhhhhhhhh, that looks GREAT Wayne!!! Nicely done. She looks fast just sitting there - nice black and white scheme. Not that you need it, but good luck on the maiden flight, can't wait to hear how she goes. Oh yes, what's that white stuff on the ground? Do you need for it to go away before the maiden flight?

Once again, nice job!

Rob

She's a beauty Wayne! What is the wingspan and airfoil used? Love the B&W with a touch of gold...classy man, dressed in a tuxedo with cuff links. Sweet.

The span is 3 meters and the airfoil is an Eppler 193. The design is from 1986. Here is another picture.

I've got some good ones that I'll share sometime -the one in Mexico comes close , but I'll have to save that one for a time and place that's appropriate! (read, not here!)

What a great laugh, and your friend is one lucky guy to have you to call on!

Cheers,

Rob
Thanks Rob,

I'm sure everyone has wild and crazy stuff go on around them. Maybe it's just I pointedly look for strange, silly and absurd. I've been told a lot that I'm sort of hyper mentally and I have to stay entertained or I get myself in too much trouble. I have a lot of stories too that are NOT G rated.

One thing is I truly love my friends and I tend to reject anyone stuffy or boring. I can't think of anyone in my circle that isn't extremely entertaining, highly intelligent and certifiably nuts.

Who do you think I was referring to when I said "certifiably nuts"? I was talkin' bout you, Asher!

Call me this weekend.

Great looking ship Wayne, with those colors and the fuse and rudder shape that baby is one 'Mean Motor Scooter'

The 4 panel poly wing is a perfect look half cool and half bad news for a great balance !!
