Wow Ross,

Your Duet looks great. I'm happy to see another Duet in the air.

My real job has been kicking my butt for the past few months and I have not had much time for fun stuff but I have 3 or the first 5 kits almost in the box. All that is really left is in fact the box. I am having a hard time finding a standard box that is not to large and not to small. I'd hate to have custom boxes made but I may have to bite the bullet.

I am going to try and have the final 3 kits ready tomorrow and let three folks form my original list know. They need to get released into the wild.

Hi Ross

Boy that red & black is sure striking together, and the silver sets it off just right.

So how does it fly?

Great job Ross. Is it me or does it look a tiny bit tail heavy? It seemed like it was loosing a lot of airspeed in thermals.

I soooo need to build one.
