outdoor stuff!


Well, it's now officially Spring (at least I hope so....) and thoughts turn to soaring. Just finished the MPF size of the OSG this last week and spent some quality time in thermals as well as learning how to fly the thing. I added ailerons to the center section of wing. was a bit concerned that they would be ineffective, but pleased that they work "just fine". I'm sure they would be more effective outboard, but for a sport glider, provide plenty of control to roll. I can navigate around the sky well with just ailerons and elevator, although there have been a few instances when adding in some rudder "finished" the turns. The wing has enough dihedral that I can also fly it RET. Gonna be a fun summer!
