After considerable flight testing with my prototype Parallax, I began work on a few others. While I did incorporate some improvements based on lessons-learned, the next batch was equally about exploring a few of the other configuration options. This is the 1st one completed...well, it's nearly complete. The remaining jobs are cosmetic.

The wing is essentially the same, but mirrored from the prototype. Rather than a canard, this one has a standard horizontal stab. It also has a functioning rudder. I'm anxious to see how this one fares compared to the first. My other airframes from the current batch are with buddies to be completed. At least one of those will be a canard. There's more to come I'm sure. I'll report back here after I've had a chance to maiden this one.

Just a few photos from the B-17 fly-in at Bomber Field USA today. The original plan was for me and Lee to attend all day yesterday.

We arrived about 11:30 and not many people were left at the event. But we still got to see some cool stuff. Next year, I'll definitely go on Saturday!
