thanks for the inspiration !

Well that did it! I have all winter and will have a DLG with me next March in Key West. I plan to build the MIMi with a hot wired wing. It will be RE only, I like simple and rhe reports say it works well that way.
Please keep updating the tread and more photos please (sunshine & green grass are scarse in Vermont this time of year)

After considerable amount of hours in air it was time to run maintenance. Soak LE with epoxy, patch cracks, fill holes. For same time I can't get rid of double neutral in ailerons. Suspect - hinge! Many time mentioned here, Olag's ailerons FG facing method sims reasonable to Me. I re hinged everything using blue tape and CA. Wings became significantly stiffer and double neutral is gone! Two birds with one stone!

Hi G
First i made balsa tube, just like rolled balsa booms r made, alcohol + 1" pipe or dowel and some robber bands(I use brum stick. Ha!). This balsa pipe (cut, glued and sanded) will make covering. You can accomplish same by planking, beautiful example here: http://albatros.backpackit.com/pub/701850
Happy New Year!

Respect

Few people build their own planes from scratch. Good or bad I have all respect for them. Good Job and Keep it up.
I wish I did take photos from when I build my pod I think you could have learned something from it. I will put some pictures here when I go home.
