Sandy Hogan Pylon

Bob Galler comments: "This is the last monster I build for a while. Here is the pylon prior to setting angle of attack and sheeting the 1/2 inch center with 3/8 on both sides vertical grain. Ruler gives scale. I will reduce original free flight incidence from what looks like  4 degrees down to 2 for RC."

Sandy Hogan Balanced Rudder

Bob Galler reports:

The framing is done and covering is next. Per a suggestion Jim Correll, I made it (the rudder) balanced and used a hinge of carbon tube with piano wire. It looks large to me but will probably do the job. However, it does not look large when test-mounted on the stab or next to wing!
