Here we are the morning of October 17 at Domingo Baca Park in Albuquerque. The Hover King is set at 40% CG and the hi-start is provided by Bob Galler. Five flights on this Peter Gilbert design from 1950. No problems in flight. I was surprised at how fast this 72" span glider flies with the 13% GOe549 airfoil.
Time to start something completely different. The BMJR kit of the Zaic Thermic 50.

Check out those prices!
The Thermic 50 should make a nice electric. I happen to have almost all the RC and electric gear needed to fly her at the SAM Champs. (I wonder if someone somewhere has the plan for the pod and boom Thermic 50-X pictured above?)
