Don! You're missing the point! This thread is for people with an irrational dislike of V tails!

Actually I have a couple, one of which is totally my own design, the other is hacked from a commercial kit. And they both fly very well.

Wayne, Another fine mess you gotten us into Ollie. I like Pinto Gris to much to swith now. We can't change the name now, because of all the business cards, letter head and patches. Maybe you could form a sub-sub-group !!!! The Tartan Group of the No V Tails Group of the BPS. I think I need some Vinilla Yogurt and Blue Berrys.

Alright Dogfly,

Unless one of the other officers has any objections, your in. You just have to take the offical No V Tail Oath. Raise your right hand and promise never to build, own, or fly a V tail plane. Your our first member. The first 3 guys are the officers !!
One of the guys in New Zealand has a Wanderer. He posted a photo of it by his car. I've seen the 2 x 4 kit in the cataloges. It should be a fun build for you. Start a thread on it when you get going on it. Good luck. I can't spell Pinot when I'm typing fast. Smile.

Holy mackeral, How did we get to no kilts??? Ok let me clarify, a tartan is, according to the online dictionary, "Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartans originated in woven cloth, but are now used in many other materials. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. (Tartan is also known as plaid in North America, but this word means a tartan cloth slung over the shoulder or a blanket.)"

So just because I found the blue plaid on a tartan site does not mean we have anything to do with kilts. Nothing against kilts to all the Scottish out there. I am part Scottish, Campbell clan. I have been told not to mention this if I ever venture over there due to bad blood still going on from conflicts hundreds of years ago.

Now that our president has returned from the bunker after the attempted coup, I might discuss a different blue plaid pattern used on the patchs for different factions. Or possibly having each individual having their own blue plaid pattern based on their sir name with a common insignia for the BPS. Not unlike different "tartan" patterns differentiating clans. So much to think about. We might have to have a board meeting in Hawaii to work all of this out? Hmmm, Could be the first ever Blue Plaid Squadron fly over Hawaii event. We need to raise the anual dues so we can afford junkets like this. DogFly, as the only current member at large, it looks llike your dues will be very high this year.

Don:

The website I found this on is www.kiltstore.net I liked the sir name search feature.

OMG....

I take a week and a half off, and look what happens.

May I suggest that the "No V-Tails" club hold it's next meeting with it's board of directors present, and attired in dresses. Mini-skirts, and high heel shoes.

Bob? As President of said organization....you should be dressed in the appropriate garb of the office. The aforementioned dress with high heels PLUS fishnet stockings.

Post the pictures. It will enhance the organization's credibility.

Sign me...

If this was posted a couple of months ago, I would happily be a member-in good-standing. However, I've been successfullly tempted and seduced by V tails twice now. First with a Silent Dream (more of that seducing), and now the Chrysalis. The worst part is, I've been contemplating a V Tail on my future Riser 112. That confession will probably get me expelled from the BPS all together.
