    John,
    We'll make it work somehow. I'm back in commission as of today (Monday) and will standbye to find out what is good for you guys - so I'll remain flexible.

    Hey Dick. The Waco would be in the air by now if not for my endless fidling to make it unique. I'm working on getting the lights installed, but oh how I hate to cut into the covering to do it! I've also been working on a custom spinner, of the style you might find on a Cessna 195. There are no off-the-shelf spinners of that style in this scale, so I'm making my own. If I ever finish this thing, it's gonna look great!

    Dick,
    I think you and Mike have already been in touch, I just wanted to let you know that I will definitely try my hardest to join everybody for a group fly-in while Mike is in town. Any day from the 20th - the 23rd is OK for me. Hope to see you soon,
    John.
    PS: I hope you get to feeling better soon!

    Doug,
    Good to hear fom you. I tried to reply sooner but it wouldn't send for some reason. The Wedell remains mostly finished less the top flying wires. They attach to the battery hatch with springs secured to the wheel pants under the wing....kinda awkward to mention the least. I'd like to relocate the springs under the hatch somehow but hav'nt developed a satisfying method yet.
    Did some taxi tests a couple weeks back and the motor mount broke off when I hit a small clump of grass and it very lightly turned over. I think this is going to be a regretfull purchase but I'M still hpoeful.
    I'll put up some photos and some of the build details later on.
    I'm pleased to see you're happy with the Waco.....I'd have been happier with that than the Wedell.Keep us posted on the results.

    Best regards,

    Dick

    Hey Dick. Any progress on the Wedell-Williams? The Waco YKS is coming together nicely. My motor arrived yesterday but I am still waiting on some nav lights to arrive from HobbyCity to complete the kit. Also got some custom graphics from Callie Grahics to dress it up a little. I must say Pilot-1 did a great job with this one. It is going together really smoothly! Sorry to hear the WW isn't as nice.

    Hope you are well.
    Doug

    Hi Dick. Yes, I am still really looking forward to hooking up and flying with you and Josh. I am usually pretty flexible when it comes to weekends. I would love to do a group meet while Mike is home for R&R. We can take the seats out of my van and haul 'em all down!

    Hey Dick, how's the Wedell-Williams coming together? I keep looking for your build thread, but so far nothing. I've got a Waco YKS thread to start myself, but my garage shop has been so cold that the idea of spending time out there is just plain unappealing.

    OUCH. That was ugly - as they usually all are.... amazingly minimal damage though.
    Flew the F4U last eve and this morning.... till it was either too dark or too windy. I tried my first inverted flight yeserday eve and this morning with a few split-s's and Immelmens. What a great airplane.
