No, this one is a direct scale down of the MadCap 50, 65% I think. And of course a scaled down plane means enlarged surfaces off the scaled down plans :mrgreen:

Maybe after this one dies I'll do one with the EVO quad taper :rockon:
Scratch built slabs, nitro power, any questions!! :rockon:

I'm down but I'm mediocre at building and terrible at covering. You would want it ARC from me, not ARF.

As for the little guys, Goofy, you are first in line for at least the cap or both of them depending on just how much building you feel like doing. Again, I'll get in touch with you once I'm close to having the files ready to go to work out details.



I wish you and Andy weren't cubbing off at HoBro and you both took a pull on my wagon. :dk:

Well that's cool! Actually from what I understand Jim has an article coming up talking about small run kit production and I'm specifically mentioned in there. I wrote a short bit for him. Not sure when it will be getting printed.

I'd be willing to build something, but I have so much on my plate right now I just don't have the time. If it takes a couple of months to have the kits ready, I may have my bench cleared by then. Keep me in mind.

The truth of the matter is that I lost momentum and got really busy with a ton of other things. Drifting was one over the fall but lately it has been work and preparation for my private pilot glider rating. I may get things going again shortly - having admitted that the CNC is not likely to be up and running soon I'm thinking that I will do another run of kits through back slider after hobro to appease the masses :) Maybe I'll finish up another bird or two after I'm done with that.
