The two white stripes on the bottom of the Raven weren't enough contrast for me yesterday after a few flights so this morning I added two more to match.

during our camping trip this weekend my 5 year old daughter told me she wanted to help build an airplane. When we got home yesterday I grabbed this very basic glider kit for her to see the plans and box of wood to see if she really wanted to do this. She is very excited about it. Hopefully she can remain patient with the process.

Well flight number 5 after rebuilding the Raven resulted in a dumb thumb. Was flying in heavy winds and did a snap roll into harrier down low. Was flying with a tail wind and even going full throttle it just didn't start climbing fast enough and a smacked into one of the pilot safety fences. Sadly this time I broke the wing that didn't receive much damage in the last crash but its back on the bench for more repairs.

Do you just glue the old covering back down. If you do how do make it stick down properly. I have tried that it always comes loose and end having to recover the part.
