My first foray into something outdoor. Have been an Indoor FF rubber enthusiast till now.
But this design from the Plan Gallery was very tempting. Also our Aeromodellers Association of India is predominantly outdoor RC guys and most events dont have a suitable indoor space. So in such events there is nothing for indoor guys to do. So doing some outdoor FF stuff to add to the flying fun outdoors.
If all goes well we will have our first Indoor Nationals in April this year.
Anyway I also live close to the sea and in the afternoons there is a pretty strong sea breeze up on the plateau close to my place. Should be a good place to fly this Gyro Glider like a kite.
Have improvised a bit using depron balsa sandwich for some sections.
Also got a thickness gauge from a jeweller and using it on the balsa sheets I had showed that the sheet had pretty wide variations in thickness along the length.
