Nice work Alex.
298 that side is a great effort mate. Congrats.

Now you don't need a gun man you can do it yourself.

Our Long Gully and South Coast sites are on the same coast line. Long Gully is a private farm and the South coast site is public land. Here are some Google Earth locations and photos.

BTW, Chris, in the 'Tweety' section, the Stab Extreme is listed as having a span of 25".
For good order's sake, it is in fact 26".

Thanks.

Way to go, Stu! It takes an incredible pilot and an expert builder to pull off what you did with those wings. Pictures don't do them justice, they must be seen in person to appreciate the workmanship.
