Klaus , I got it back together...
GregGold has me concerned that it may be too light for flying at Otford.
would there be a minimum wing loading suitable for Otford.?

looks great glenn! Was that the one you were adding ailerons to?

If it flies anywhere near as good as Steves passer thermo it'll be awesome.

Hey Glenn, it looks quite a strong tail and not saggy at all
Can't wait to see you fly something saggytail or not!

Thanks Dave, its a bit heavier than the Passer [600g] ,
Though at 980g and wing loading of 24g / dm squared
I am still nervous about trying it at Otford.
It has the Full length ailerons. All moving tailplane.
Hope it to be a Good Learning experience.
Glenn.

Yeah, it's called Death Valley I'm sure we've all ventured over there at some time and looked at it's jaws. Hopefully the Saggytail will stay clear of it for a while!

I got the joke Zipper.
Yes, this is the Otford thread
Death Valley is at Otford, not at Mt Annan.

Regardless of the location... you gonna chuck that thing flatstick?

I also got it just didnt think it was funny
People who fly Otford also fly Mt Annan and visa verserand as the lift is crap at Otford In a NE blow they have and aternative that works but if you want to get all centralized on only typing about Otford here then so be it , I withdraw the comments.
SteveW who gets the feeling of a bit of elitism sneaking in
