It's been awhile since I've posted anything here,so thought I'd add a few lines

Two weeks ago I purchased a CR raider from a fellow RC groups member,Toby.

Toby is a very nice guy,and we had a good chat when I went to pick up the airplane.I flew it last weekend,and with a few changes,it flew well.It desperately needs new paint and a steel wing joiner.Once thats complete ,I'll post picks.

On another subject,My scratch built T tail(bagged wing and fiberglass fuse),that I've flown for almost 2 years had a mid air with a friend's moldie two weeks ago.First mid air in 2 years

The wing was cut in half and the fuse broke just ahead of the tail section.Parts of the wing were lost in the scrub brush,never to be found again.

Thinking the plane was a loss,I brought it home intending to pull the radio gear.Sunday morning,I thought "what the heck",I'll try and glue the wing together and see how straight it turns out.
The wing went together straight as an arrow and from there,epoxy,foam and lots of carbon to give myself a good strong straight wing.
Glass,epoxy,bondo,sand,bondo sand,repeat for what seemed like days.

Anyway,wings balanced,color paint is on(still needs clear coat).Fuse is reglassed and painted(again,needs clear coat).

Here is the result.
