Starting to look like an airplane.
I am still not happy about the wing centre section. 
I feel it needs a spar joiner, not only having both halves butt glued.

We will be there no matter the weather.  Come and train, come and teach, come and fly or just be part of the peanut gallery.

A busy evening. Quite gusty and swirley, if that is a possible description.

- 7 students, 3 flight instructors and two transmitter jockeys (Paul and Mark).
Students were Maya, Small Mark, Victor, Omar, Tony, Jeff, Colin's son and Lot.
Instructors..with thanks...George, Simon H., YT.

Lot Leung received his "wings" with a very good flight.

Good to see Simon H. back after a 5 week trip polishing his English accent

Interesting: a large first aid helicopter circled the field at about 500' and landed behind the house to the east of Lysander forest, probably at the nursery and took off 10 minutes later. See photo.

Everything glued and sanded.  The aileron push rod was missing.  There was one hiding in my collection the exact length.

Last job- use light weight spackling (filler).  It dries a dull white.  It is available at the box stores like Home Depot.  There are about three or four types.  Pick it up.  If it feels empty you have the right one.  All others have significant weight. The one I use is DAP Fast'n Final.

Done.

The owner has been contacted.  The wing is awaiting a date with the fuse.

An astute observer will notice that Frank and I wore the same Beaver flying suits on both occasions.  We always like to look our best when on stage. And why spend money on new clothes when  we can spend it on props, plywood, balsa and glue!!
