Does anybody have a picture of the NIT embryo designed by Don Srull ? I sure would like to see it if you do. I saw a picture several years ago with a dt rigged on the top of the fuselage set-up to release the wing upon activation.

I spoke with Jerry Porter yesterday and he answered all my questions. He has had three NITS and now has only two.

The Nits all fly great. He still enjoys the embryo event. Me too.

Talk about waking the dead.
I was given an NIT plan in the early ‘90s. I’m finally building one.
My questions about the NIT all revolve around the dt. My copy of the plan doesn’t show or reference any dt. I am thinking/looking at using the rear tilting wing, pivoting at the trailing edge. The plan for the wing is a simple v dihedral. Will that work, or change to polyhedral with a flat center section only as wide as the cabin?
Also, I am planning on using a button timer. Where to put it?
Thoughts and comments welcome!
