A quick up date on the 120" AD5 redesign.

I finished the CAD work about a month ago and emailed the files to Pat at LasercutUSA. Got the parts back within a week and one of our members and fellow Warbird pilot, Howard Davidson started on his wing. I'm building the fuselage to verify the design would work. I have run into some design issues (expected) but mostly the fuselage is going well. Howard has the right wing roughed out and is working on the left wing panel.

Our plan is to have his AD5 and my A1H ready for the flying season this spring.
