Finally got a really good day and took the glider out for a few flights.
Seven flights off my high start..very little trim change and rock steady.
Slows right down and still very controlable and can also put in a good turn of speed.
Very happy with the results.
Next will be a windy day and off the slope.
Transport box all done for the trip across the ditch to Australia in August
Now just have to keep the glider in one piece until then.

Finally got the glider finished.
Pulled a new canopy,made up fiberglass wing /fuse fairing,stripped the fuse and repainted
The covering on the wings /tail are all hobbyking white,and the fuse is done in 2 pak.
The 2 pak paint I use on our new Piper aircraft is an exact colour match as the HK wing covering.
Now ready for the test flight
before rebuild wt was 2.3lb.pretty happy with that.
