My flying skills can no longer keep up with my building skills at age 75 so I have given up flying. I have been building planes that are faster than I can handle
safely. When I had to ask a flying friend to climb a tree for me to get my plane
it was the last straw.

I have been around boat building and sailing all my adult life so it is something
I am comfortable with. I have built one full size racing sail boat
racing it on San Francisco Bay and owned another racing it on Bellingham
Bay and sailing it around Seattle in the Sound and Lake Washington.

The RG-65 I will be showing you is my first Model Sail Boat.

A New Funder & Lightning Completed
Thought I would send along pictures of my plane just finished last night.
Then a break in the storms today allowed me to Photograph it.

Someone recently was asking for info. on components from Hobby King so
I took the pictures close enough to read the labels on them.
All from HK except the motor mount and they have one that mounts the same.

The only thing I did that I haven't seen before is I stowed the antenna by gluing little peaces of RC car antenna tube inside the space between the booms and stabilizer and ran the wire around with a little 1/2 inch left on the rear of fuse pod.

I thought it was time to document my latest work.
First I will show my 24" blue baby. I have flown it so hard, under adverse
conditions, and broke it and repaired it so many times that I decided to rebuild it and pirate all its parts into the new model.(this is the one below with the
red polka dots.

Second I show the green blue baby below with a crumpled nose that I replaced
with a fiberglass & epoxy cowl.

Last I show my latest effort a "Miss Stick" a kit from Hobby Lobby built in the
old traditional way with sticks. My biggest satisfaction was finding a $10.00
replacement motor for the suggested $70.00 Axie motor.
