Come on guys--a little drop in temperature is nothing--as long as there is no wind! Seriously, I froze my cahonees off, but it was still better than staying home.

17 IS pretty nuts Pat I was out today flying my D.VII in 26 deg weather and with the windchill on top of that it was just crazy. Landed a couple of times with no and in some cases negative groundspeed!

For the first time ever I wimped out and put on gloves to fly, despite how awkward it is flying with gloves on! All that because a friend of mine said "I didn't get to see that pretty red and white plane fly last time!" hehehe... I'm nuts.

Oh, and I really love that Waco cabin bipe Pat, always wanted to do one of those on floats with the vendtral rudder extension

On a moth-ey subject, you will all be happy to know that poor Lil' Fishy which has sat the season out due to lack of motor now has a Feigao-ish motor and a gearbox standing by to bring her back to life!

Soon she will touch the guys once again...

Cheerio and keep up the great pics!

A few more photos. I took 7 planes to the field and flew them all--no pics of the Monocoupe, G-Ride, Wildcat and SE-5--tooo hard to take photos of them while I fly them. The moths are so stable I just watch them--electric controlled free flight!

Great pics Pat. Had some surgery Friday with some restrictions on what I can do for a month so not back to flying yet but for the most part the weather has been so lousy it doesn't matter.

Sorry to hear you had surgery--that is always a last resort for me! Take care and build some more models while you recuperate. We are anxious to see your next model.

At least I'm still here! Did you see the Slow Stick Goodie Plane?

Nice Waco there Pat. I like that adjustable mount there Boomer. It should be able to scale up nicely for my Dandy Sport or maybe I should take the over powered AXI out

Pat,
As always, great pics!
Did you vac-bag those floats? I remember you said you glassed some areas(tops, bottoms back to step, etc.) but I didn't get wheather you had vac-bag'd them.
and what weight of glass cloth did you use (and where did you get it?)?
Thanks
Wes

No vacuum bagging -- don't even know what that means. I used light glass cloth on the whole float this time with an extra layer on the bottom from the step forward to the nose. I thinned 30min epoxy with denatured alcohol to adhere the glass on the floats. Got the glass at the LHS.

Someone told me it's something you do after crashing your plane. You put the remains in a plastic bag, and then vacuum up all the pieces too small to pick up by hand. Can't attest to this, however.

That's the advantage of using a film covering, like Monokote. When you crash, the parts are ALREADY bagged

And when you get home, get out the glue, and start to put the bits back in the correct order. It is just like another type of jigsaw puzzel.

The only problem is by the time you finish you have a brick instead of a airplane!
