I built this little 1940 era towline glider several years ago. I converted it to RC with rudder and elevator controls. I built it with balsa wood and jap tissue and is finished with nitrate dope. I launch it with a high start (50 feet of 1/8" surgical tubing and 200 feet of kite string).

Yes, we do have bears. :cry: Last summer nine bears came through Central (7 black bears, and 2 grizzlies). Two black bears were shot as they were breaking into people's homes. Aggressive buggers! Needless to say we keep a loaded gun handy near by. :)
