Default Windsong's or SailAire's

Does anyone know of sites or info dedicated to the Sailaire, Windsong or
Lovesong sailplanes?

Using Google, I've found the files on the Denver site, written by Bob
Dodgson and the pictures on the Cincinnatti site.

Does anyone know of any additional sites or links?

Thanks

Bob,
Similar story, I have a Windsong, Camano both flyable and a LoveSong kit. Thinking of getting back in the air. That's why I asked if there were any sites dedicated to these machines.

Just talked to Bob Dodgson tonight; flew his designs for many years. He works for Boeing in Bothell WA and doesn't do any serious flying any more. Sure wish I still had a E214 Camano; I'd go show the kids how a real sailplane flies and blow their ---- away! Bob's Email is [email protected] Jim LSF796

Here's a Camano build I did a few months ago. Have a Windsong kit, which I intend to do a documented build with also.

I have just been given a badly beaten Windsong, I think! It was modified for nitro I've cut and removed and would like to see a picture to rebuild back to original. If anyone could furnish a picture that would greatly appreciated.
