Ever have trouble finding some of the "gizmos' needed for a new glider? For example, you know those fancy raised stab mounts with nylon bolts for the ultimate in precision incidence setting? How about a carbon V-mount that fits C/F booms? Maybe a DLG pushrod, in etched teflon tubing? OK, since it's (just past) the holidays, let's wish for a DLG wiring harness, 28 gauge wire, 5-pin micro connector. Wait! A 350mAh RX pack!

Well, that was easy! Let's try a tougher one...Hmmmm-M-2, M-3, M-4, M-5 nylon wing bolts, I want the matching nuts, maybe whole mounting sets. While we're at it, nylon control horns, 5mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm. That's for straight (conventional, cruciform, take your pick) tails, right? What about "V" tails? 15mm, 20mm. Carbon rod joiners, machined tow hooks, hinge tape, F/G cloth, more RX packs, 300mAH 4.8V, 600mAh 4.8V, 800mAh 4.8V, 1000mAh 6.0V. We'll never find all that!

Last, the AVIA tapered, wrapped carbon tubing, perfect for tailbooms. How about non-tapered, too? Might want to make spars and reinforcements with this stuff! Lots of sizes, other F/G tubing, flat carbon, more composite stuff. Can we find that somewhere?
There you go!

OK, I an jump on this idea:

Wing rods in steel or aluminum, reflective wing tape for visability, gap tape, and ballast weights of any size and shape.
