    Yup if it hadn't been for family drama this past Tuesday that kept me out of the shop the wings would almost be done and when it comes to covering well let's just say I love that stuff so it goes down quick and I have a pretty simple scheme in mind for it.

    I did make some progress yesterday. All spars in one wing are glued up and in the process of laying up the other wing. Like I said taking my sweet time with this one but it will be worth it. By the end of this week the wing will see some sheeting. Currently though I have a huge pile of pallets in front of me. Project for the wife's school.

    Interesting to follow and it is looking good. I see that you are going with built up ailerons, that’s interesting, I would’ve thought that you would go with flat plate ailerons. Is there a reason for this.

    Talking with some buddies we feel built up are stronger therefore they don't flex as much and will provide better authority in higher energy maneuvers. Adds a little more time to the build and is a little more complex but I think the end result with be worth it in both the performance and looks department.
