Mindwarp's Journal: Two days to go... 1

Journal by Mindwarp

Well, it's two days to go before I take my first flying lesson. I contacted the President of our local R/C Flying Club last week and he invited me out to the field this Thursday evening to take a few flights on their trainer! Hopefully the glorious weather will hold out until then.

My plane is coming along quite nicely. I spent five or six hours working on it this weekend, and have the engine compartment fuel-proofed and the Fin & Rudder covered now. If I can continue to work a little on the plane every evening then I should have her flying within three or four weeks. I'm still a little nervous about covering the wings though; they're a huge surface area and apparently quite difficult to cover well. The fin alone took three hours of work to get right, and that's only 10" x 10"!
