Default D. Normans RECURRING NIGHTMARE

Ten of the twenty R-200 wings ready to race in a couple of months in the NCPL. I wonder if the R-200 will beat out the Seeker again? What am I thinking, of course it will. We will have a problem because 14 of the wings are going on Seeker fuselages. If one of these cross breeds wins, which plane is the winer?[&:]

Interesting question... That goes right with the one about a tree in the woods and no one around.....

Mine "cross bread" is about ready for paint... Should be finishing up the glass this week I hope... One down, 5 to go....

Nice looking wings Randy, I don't think I will build any more.

I'd love to beat you with your own wings

Unless you cross the finish line sideways the seeker would win.

I'm going to laugh if Jess's mid-air curse works but the person Dave mid-airs every time is Jesse..

But Lee ....... we might still have to fly through the carnage or duck the flying parts. The truck that gets hit might be yours or mine!

Good point Roger, I hadn't thought about that. I guess I'll just start parking behind the shed

Lee
Parking behind the shed may not work either, a few years ago a Q500 went through the shed wall and stuck in the side of a school bus, if the bus had not been there I think it would have gone all the way through !!!

Randy,

Not to change the subject, but it appears from that photo that you have an awful lot of stuff in your pit box. I'd say you're about two Q-Tips shy of getting a visit from the Pit Box Police.

I guess I've never worried about how clean my ears were on the race line

Randy, what would you need an xacto blade for on the line? Only thing I can think of is a split line, but comeon, get your stuff ready before you get out there

Dave if you cleaned your ears you maybe could hear your caller and not cut so much. The xacto is to punch holes in Seeker fuel lines, that why I call it the Leeker.
