Cloud Tramp

I have been rushing to complete a Cloud Tramp, taking pictures for a tutorial.  The plane may be ready in time, but the tutorial won’t be up in time to help anybody else get a plane built in time.  I have wanted to do this several years running, but this time I have sacrificed square dance hoedowns and club nights to get it built.  I am hoping to get the propeller done today, the last thing before making the motor, then it will be done.

You will note that I have simplified and cleaned up the wing root.  Balsa wheels turned with a hand drill.  I put a lump of clay on the nose for glide tests, CG at about high point of camber works well.  See attached video.
