Something about that shape looks familiar!
GOLF BALLS!!!
Hehehe
Thanks guys!
That build was one of the longest.....
Just short of 200 days!

The banter makes up for it. Build logs can be a bit boring!

Well spotted Layer
It was at 2.01
That was the Baron flying the "Pink Panther Zally"
He had it whistling!
The Carbon Sally thread has been the most fun so far!
I love the interaction and the simple layout makes for an easy introduction the composites!

So, how are we gonna work the "Golf Balls"?

I'd be first in line for a fuselage if you are making them available Johann. I can build the wings and stab

She's gorgeous, absolute work of art.

Put a fuse in a bottle, write my address on a piece of paper, and toss it in the ocean on your next trip to the slipper...
The Force will do the rest!

Give my golf ball over to someone better skilled...!

You can cast your own Dudley!

Let me know when someone is driving up in your direction!
They are a bit heavy for Alain to fly up!
As you know, I don't do many!

Just a couple of ideas,
How about either a 'Wow wings Booby' or a ' Bluto ' type a plank
or a F3F type a Speedy slippery machine
Just ideas like !

Dried or died?

Sean's GoldFish is sorta dead!

He dumped her into the hillside pretty hard trying to entertain you all!
The joiner snapped, both 4mm cf push rods broke, the wing has a ding on the leading edge.....
The fuz miraculously survived!
It has a tiny stress fracture behind the trailing edge, but otherwise fine.

She was only a prototype to iron things out .
I'm waiting for Graham to finish the new wing and tails...
Sexier lines and a lot lighter!

So we all await the next episode.

Who is busy finishing off a carbon Alchemy!

I think I missed something on the wing bagging DVD I watched. Is there something behind the trailing edge?

Too bad about the prototype. If you need a new test pilot... let me know!
