    Toys for Tots may be an option but already have plans with the wife for this weekend. Here is a link to our club website. Should take you straight to our field page. Fun fly will be at the Ft Lee field. There's no landing fee and BBQ lunch will be provided.

  2. @Jetpainter You decide on your next project yet? lol

    I'll probably be starting the Kanary in a week or so, I'm repainting the floor in the shop this week, but I already bought the wood and most of the hardware.

    Well, I've come to the conclusion at this point that assembling a bipe at the field is more than I'm willing to do right now. Maybe someday.
    I have been drawing a new airplane for this winter.

    Looking forward to you new build!

  5. Well darn! Lol

    But really though, what you got there looks really cool. Looks a bit like a classic pylon racer, which is what the Kanary is.

    Question to the di-plane gentleman. The bigger biplane let’s say 60cc and up. If I we’re to build a biplane it would be for a 150cc engine. Anyway the biggest down fall for me is the setup at the field. I know for the true diplane person this is just the way it is. But the question is first does the larger biplanes need all the cross bracing or not. Second if it is needed can it be replaced with fishing line with snap hooks on the end. Then it just a matter of installing the top and bottom wings. I am sure with a little bit of thought we could come up with something that makes the side plates a snap to install.
