Good News Everyone!

After the first Mubu prototype showed some pitching up tendencies
we decided to build another one with less washout (wich means close to zero).
Also a new fuselage pod should allow to shove the guts a bit forward
and avoid the neccessity of any nose lead.

Things are going quite well since then.

On sunday Paul prepared the RDS linkages for the new flyer,
shaped a new pod plug from polystyrene and built a pod on it.

I cut a set of new wingblanks with the new washout
and we sheeted them the same day.

Now the thing is at a point, where both winghalfs has to be
glued together with the root rib and the GF joint.

This is going to be done today.
A rather quick setting brand of laminating resin combined with the finally warm
summerlike weather should make it possible to cover it by this evening.

Tomorrow we should be able to maiden the #2.

And if it's allright, it will be with us on the training
session in Erftstadt (near Cologne) this weekend.

We would love to see some perplexed faces there,
since in German forums noone should have seen anything of this project yet.
And I doupt, that anybody from over there would find this here.
