It keeps getting better...
I had an assignment two weeks ago to cover NEFI at the AMA International Aeromodeling Center in Muncie, IN. I also got to fly a little. I took my Radian powered sailplane with me, and my Super Solution camera plane although my R/C shutter switch wasn't working so I didn't get any Aerial Images .
As a result of having the Radian, and partially due to my Super Solution because it flies like a big glider, I've taken a new direction with my R/C modeling. I've gotten really interested in R/C Soaring and Thermal Duration models. I still haven't finished my Ultra Sport 60, but I will, someday . Right now I've got an Oly II kit on the bench from Skybench.com. I can tell you from looking through the contents of the kit, Ray Hayes of Skybench.com takes pride in the products he sells and these kits are complete. In a matter of just a few hours I had the fuselage parts all dry-fitted and ready to be glued permanently. The design changes that Ray has made (locking tabs and light ply doublers), make a fuse that, even dry-fitted, is tight and true. I'll be documenting my build for a build thread on my local area R/C forums, www.alvinrc.com, but not for RCGroups as there have been several threads already on this aircraft and the Oly IIs, Skybird, and other models produced by Skybench.
Since I'll be building this aircraft stock with no modifications, I should be able to finish it in less than a month, which for me is more like two months because I work a week on, week off, out of town. At any rate, it'll definitely be done sooner than my Ultra Sport 60!
