Thanks for adding me!

I' m a 75 year old, retired, man. My wife of 48 years passed a year ago after a long fight with Alzhiemer"s. I live in Kent, Washington, a suburb SE of Seattle.
I flew control line and R/C a lot 1975-1980, received my Private Pilot, Single Engine Land in 1992, built a Hummel Bird and crashed it (tiny, single seat, all aluminum, 1/2 VW motor).

Now I want to do R/C again. I build in balsa, prefer from plans. I'm looking at old time Free Flight, converted to electric R/C, at least 7 foot or so wing span. I'm not afraid of scaling to a size I like. I like gliders, be they Bird of Time or cabin or pylon from the '30's or now. Stick and tissue preferred, but not required. I'm not into a lot of walking anymore so no High Start or winch, a prop somewhere is what I like. Almost certainly electric.
