Finished the covering on the Wanderer this evening. Looks much better than it did. Took awhile to carve a nose for it from a 2x4, but I think it turned out fine. With any luck, I will get it out to fly it tomorrow.

My buddy showed up with a glider Saturday to give me. It was in rough shape to say the least. He had covered it, then a few years later decided to paint over the covering It had about a 1/2 gallon of epoxy all over it, a card-board nose cone, and some paper towels glued to it in place of some of the covering.

I Stripped it down, did some repairs and recovered it. Its almost done now, and it weighs a lot less. Should fly pretty well.

I might make a removeable nose so I can put a motor on it too in case I cant figure out what the heck "lift" is! (this is my first glider). Anyway, here it is.

Here it is done. The maiden went great. Very smooth flying plane. Just needs a bigger prop and a 4S.

Here is a link to the video of the maiden flight. Flew it on a 12x8 and a 3S. I will be switching it out for 4S and a 14x7ish prop.

Here is "Spatial Disorientation" with a Sharpie paint job on it. Now I gotta do the bottom and do some touching up on the fuse.

Heres my latest build, named Spatial Disorientation. Finished it and flew it today, and it is a dream to fly. Very nice considering its one of my own designs again.

How do I get so lucky on these TLAR (that looks about right) builds of mine? Oh well, cant complain.

Well, it flew, just needs a slight bit of tweeking. Its a bit nose heavy and could use some more power. So, I'll put a brushless outrunner in the nose and a slightly bigger battery on the tail. It will fly well, just gotta get it dialed in.

Inroducing, Ms. Isle. Made from a Ultracote tube, speed 400 and some FFF.

Wonder where this thing should balance at! Who knows. If it lives long enough for me to find out, I'll let ya know. Flight report after an attempt is made.

Here is quick pic of my M2 from Ohio Combat. Has a Hacker B-20 26L on it with a 3S 1200. 75mph top speed level, so far. Great little wing.

I stuck 16 LEDs inside a Super Fly to make the SUPER BRIGHT SUPER FLY. Should be no problem to see at night.
