    My eyes think they see a repair patch that tore out. From the color of the floats that one did not come on land very often.

    One would think Tom lives down there.
    Or could it be that when he is down for a holiday is when everyone else needs to call Cathy

    Better cruise, shorten it.

    And 5 or so within the jam nut, 24 showing. That is scary. No 60+ banks in that plane for me, mate.

    Frank's biggest concern is weight. For all we know Lar's would not sell him the lightweight cloth to cover the ends of the wings. The Oratex RC plane covering is all we need.

    As Gary says, take the squared off wing offering more area, now move the aileron out as far as possible, now extend the flaps.
    Now those wing tips give you more lift and the ailerons are more...

    I have wanted to stay out of this, but I guess I am not.
    For a straight wing aircraft the wingtip for the most part does not matter.
    If you read allot of Hoerner's design theory, and follow this...

    Top stringers revisited,
    Yesterday I got the fiberglass tubes trimmed to fit in place on top of the fuselage. Today I undertook making some saddles these tubes will be supported on. The saddles are...

    Yes fabric wings perform well at low speed, because they can not achieve a high speed.
    Low speed and light weight are not my goal here. It might be feasible that a fabric wing could fly slower, but...

    I use blade fuses. They are more reliable than the out dated round fuses. The round fuses rely on solder joints internally which I have seen too many fail for no reason.
