Weather (mostly due to wind) and family matters have kept me from updating, but the JETSTREAM is finished, but no chance to even get a test toss Sad.

One thing I changed at the last minute was the tow-hook.  I had been looking thru some of my A1 and A2 plans and kept coming back to the TALON A2 from Jetco - another glider that has been on my "want list" since it was published.  I noted that the adjustable tow-hook was really quite simple, tho requiring intermediate bending skills for the "supplied" (not stated on plan) wire gauge.  An A1 doesn't need such a robust hook, so I bent one (second try Roll Eyes) out of 1mm music wire.  Two servo screws to mount and has a total adjustment length of 3/8ths inch.

My wish for a TALON has also been answered in that I was offered an original kit after responding to a thread about an Estate sale on FB.  Should arrive in about a week (from Canada).
