Not much flying going on, but a fair amount of building.  Fear the Chicken!

All the dimensions are the same as the original.  Tried lot of changes, but keep coming back to Tony’s drawing.  A few structure changes: wing wood was re-arranged -- heaviest wood now at the wing TE so there would be a lot less of it.  D-joints now have LE to TE straps of .6 oz glass cloth with the grain on the diagonal (instead of the original diamond shaped patches).  Cross-grained tip pieces are gone – found them not needed when launching tip f’glass is larger and planted at 45 degrees. 

The nose has been reconfigured to suit a servo and Kenny Bauer’s RDT setup.   They are small as TLGs go (28” flat), but they are tough, thermal well, handle rough air, and even manage to beat bigger birds every once in awhile.

*have also built several carbon/foam versions.  So far these have not been of sufficient quality for public viewing.  Oops.  Wrong thread.
