Sorry I missed this one - would have really liked to have seen the hinge creation techniques. My Back is much better today but still a bit stiff.
How about next meeting we discuss wing designs, reinforcement and the flight characteristics of them. There are so many KF#s plus other types. Just an idea, unless this has already been done.

Glad the ol' back is better. The wing discussion hasn't been held, and it's a good one. We just have to remember 6 days from now that we are all gonna do it!

I do wish that I was there for the sessions. There is always a great topic I would like to learn more about. So I hope the un-Secretary is taking good notes with the special pen so I can catch up in April.

I loved the guads when I was there last,and sorry I missed the OK's, as I would like to build one with the new box of foam I got just before I left town. So keep
Posting and I will keep reading and watching vid's you post.

I received orders for 3 shirts. one for Scott and two for John. Vista print said the price was only good till mid night. So I ordered 4 shirts. The 4 shirts cost $49.89 delivered. So, they are only $12.46 each.

That means there is one more available at $12.46

After that we will need to place another order AND THE PRICE WILL NEED TO CHANGE.

Since I am in FL, I had them delivered to Springer. So, Mike you will be getting a package from Vista Print.

Cool thanks Don,l'll be a proud member of the unclub with my new semff shirt

On another note,I finally started using MPF,I almost fit a full size MAKO seaplane on one sheet(not no 5 easy piece plane for sure).The new Ezfly Icon A5 also came with some for the float part.I am liking the stuff very much.

John,
Best if you send it as a PayPal "GIFT" directly to my email. That saves PP fees. I'll send you a PM with the email.

Hey. Has any body been watching the TV program called The Flight Line? I just saw it on the Velocity Channel. It's about general aviation. Today's show featured AT-6's converted to Jap Zeros for reinacting WWII dog fights, sky jumping, and a carbon fiber piper cub.
Oh, wait there's more. The Aviator's just came on. Just love Sat A.M. flying shows in the winter. Now back to flying foamy RCs....

Was looking at that one, not having one you really do not know what to look for. Screw driver is not the way to do it - the way I am doing it now that is. Are you coming Wednesday - would really like to look at it.

Home made really - now that is my kind of thing. Would love to see it!
This is something else we could discuss - balancing props and how you add weight or remove weight - so much and so little time.
