I'm going away for a week, so it will be on my priority list when I get back. I'll post some pics with the coro mods.

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends and colleagues, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone or running the risk of breaching some rule or regulation. So I met with a Compliance guru, and on her advice I wish to advise the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted Gregorian calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

Man, these are getting to be complicated times. Those greetings read like the "holiday" cards they give out at my kids school at the "winter celebration" before the winter break.

Just wondering how you guys attach your winglets to your Ritewings. In all my previous builds I've epoxied the winglets. This method is good most of the time, but if you mount your winglets so that they extend below the bottom of the wing for better turn authority they can get ripped off with a hard landing.

I've toyed with the idea of using those nylon bolts and threaded bolts that the slimers use to attach their wings as an alternative to epoxy. This would also give me the ability to store and transport my birds using a compound bow case always seem to be on sale right after hunting season. I've seen this done before in other threads and would prevent agains transport damage.

Was wondering if you guys thought that was a good or bad idea?

I have my TL50 set up that way used the inner rod of the nyrod control rods and, inserted two and then used sheet metal screes to hold them on.. No problems with that setup and they are transportable..

I normally swipe a light coat of goop on the wing tip to act as a cushion or gasket to keep them from scooting around

I embedded nylon standoffs in the wing tip and used nylon 6-32 screws to attach. 3 per winglet. Seemed to work great but I have not seen what happens on a hard landing or wreck.
