    Love that chipmunk! Is that tape covering the plane? What happened to the arrow, always hate to see that happen!

    Jarred, she doesn't look too happy about the arrow damage - I hope you got it back together and flying again!

    Tonight I went to my club meeting and won a gift certificate in our 'show and tell raffle' for bringing my Mountain Models EVA! And learned some new covering and build techniques when one of our more experienced members did a wing covering demonstration. Can't wait to try them out on my next build

    Thanks! The chipmunk is probably my best build so far, and yes packing tape covering. She flies great as well. As far as the arrow, pretty much totaled, however those go together quick. She just wouldn't pull up! Oh well, build, crash, repeat, right?

    Today I drive 90 minutes in rush hour traffic to the closest legal flying field, only to have the rain start coming down as I was unloading gear.

    So I went to the local hobby shop and worked on my blues with some retail therapy. I now have all the covering and doo-dads for my upcoming cartoon scale balsa P-40 project. And electronics for the EPP Cuda in the paint box. And for $60 a very used wet fuel sport plane in the 60"-70" wingspan size with a seized OS41 motor, and 72mhz Futuba electronics - pickup later this weekend.

    Yeah, I really wish it wasn't raining.... this is hard on the wallet...

    Today I sat on the mower at the local club field and aimlessly mowed around thinking, man, I need to rig this for RC and FPV.

    Cheers!

    Mmmmm, root beer floats. A&W?
