I’m thinking about joining but the build process looks quite involved. I’m not that I am sure I’m up to the task. But if others are showing the work they do. I could simply follow the lead supplied by others.

Also they look tough to fly and even tougher to land.
I seem to have issues with landing.

Lastly if I build it ... do I have to “Toss it”

I think someone hacked Rubios account

But these are pretty easy to build. You can watch Matin, he's always pretty speedy and has pictures up almost immediately. Worry not, these paractically land themselves and if Nick Taraz is around he can land it better than me now. As for launching we can always call Pismo

My planes have “self landed” more times than I care to think about.

Thank you for your response.
Iíll just have to push the EASY button.

My planes tend to just implode on impact (landing)

I'd say that I am batting 500 at Cajon on landings....thats not too bad, I guess if I bring about 8 models to fly with,.....usually 4 make it home in flyable condition.

Still its fun, and I enjoy it, I think.

Here is one of my past BD-5's...I think it was one of Jef's kits. I put a really thin wing on it, sheeted with 1/64 ply. Was really light, fairly quick, and darted around like a swallow, but didn't hold up too well after a couple bum landings.....

Per usual we are shooting for the mid/end of January. I will schedule a build day around then.

And since you will probably be putting your own wing on it, you can start the hard part any time you like

So are there plans already available to start cores and balsa bits well ahead of the fuse?
