    Thermals,

    Where to begin… Built, flown. broken, fixed, flown some more broke again… Flew right off the board originally. It would do two minute maxes for Cat III in calm air. Starter stand fell on fuselage on way home from contest. Broke it almost clean in half. Built new fuselage over the next winter and flew again in August 2009. Was chasing trim settings when it stalled on long DT and apparently not enough decalage broke wing tip lose, ca’d at the field until further investigation revealed compressed ribs in the tip. Has been repaired but not covered.

    Currently building a 600 Sq In GEEF for “B” NOS with a greenhead 23.

    It weights about 8.5 oz Dan, about the same as most 1/2A classic gas. The fuselage is finished with Design Masters’ Carnation Red Floral spray with Klass Kote for fuel proofing. The wing is covered with Polyspan and the tail feather with Transparent Red Ultracote Lite.

    What are you using for timers?

    Where did you get them and how much?
