Hey Katie,

I'm tuning in a little late here - had some questions about the Oly II build that I have going which Sean helped me out with, and I just noticed your great looking sailplane and the successful maiden. Wow, it looks great, she flies nicely it seems, and congratulations! Well Done!

Rob
P.S. Sean - all straightened out now, and she's drying after having the interior ply sheet laminated on. Thanks again!

It was indeed a job well done. That tie-die really pops on that blue sky, particularly the center panels. Personally I'd build something else to beat up so I wouldn't mess up that lovely tie-die given all the sweat equity she's got built up in it. Really pretty ship. I may have to do some silk on my BoT now... darn it...

It's a gorgeous sailplane Katie! adds life to any slope you fly it on and it will be so chuckable and forgiving on the slope too.

Love it, simple as that.
Wanna build me one too?

You guys are awesome. Thanks!

This plane is going to sit around for just a little bit until I can train up some on a club trainer. I almost lost it yesterday. Just a day or two of training, I think.

Steve, if you supply the materials, sure. Or better, you build it up, and I'll cover it.

What a neat covering job! I am sure your Spirit E. turned heads when you brought it out to the flying field.
Am thinking that it flies similar to a Sagitta 600 with ailerons and that you will have no problems handling it.

I actually have a Sagitta 600 kit. I should build it.

Yeah, heh heh, the SE turned some heads! Most were expecting it, though. I'm getting ready for an RC air show this weekend. The SE is coming with me, regardless of whether I fly it or not.

I'd pay to watch faces at that one! That's 1/2 the fun!

There are several members that haven't checked in lately. Life getting in the way I guess.

Haven't heard from Jeff (Scaflock) in a while. Dude, if you read this CALL ME!

Night Owl has been laying low too.

Good to see ya, Al, in a manner of speaking. There was a bit of drama at the meeting last night over fields and things, and one doosey of a talk about Human powered flight. It was really neat. They're working on another one right now at Google, and are looking for hands to build bits.

Gee, guys, I have a dilemma. I have a plane on the table, so to speak, that needs covering. I'm fresh out, so it's gotta wait. In the meantime, I have this nice 3 meter BoT kit sitting here, begging to be built. Should I go for it? I'm going to have to stash the Sorcerer in a safe, dog and cat proof spot, which is rather scarce in this tiny home. Decisions, decisions.....


I'm gonna sit here and riffle through the box. I'll have to build it with the heavy balsa, if I go ahead and build it. I'll make sure to Xerox the ribs, first.
