I built an under cambered light wing loading plane in two sizes. This can be sized down to accommodate any power system.

Hey, I recognize that field. I fly there sometimes, but not so much this year. Last time I was there, it was nothing but mud from all of the rain we've had.

The dirt lane has been muddy this year with rain about every day. Where I park the car and fly is a little higher and not as bad. This is the wettest summer I can remember. I moved to Mooresville last year. I live about 10 minutes from this field. Do they meet at any specific time?

No, not too many people fly there. There's a group of guys that fly at Metrolina Expo in the evenings and Sat & Sun mornings. RC Wingers
are in Mooresville also. Not a bad facility, and if I'm not mistaken, you get a discount at Hobbytown with your membership.

Gold, we’d completely forgotten about the And Now , built a bunch of those early on ... wonder little performers for the time ...

Bigger ultralight version of one of those would fly pretty slow .. While we LOVE planes that fly really slow , we Love even more Slow Speed Aerobatics... Fun stuff... plenty of time to think .. relatively speaking of course...

I love to watch these really slow flying planes "swim" through the air. Almost like the videos are in slow motion.

Check out these really cool giants slow flying indoors:

Is there anyway to get plans for that CRI CRI? What a beautiful plane. Also, is there a kit out there for a smaller version?
