Kit & Scratch Builders Forum / Re: Marquart Charger MA-5 Biplane Build

Plugging along with wood cutting, sanding, and gluing. So far I have used only one former out of the "short kit", modified a couple and had to cut the rest from scratch. Got vertical fin and rudder formed up. Received a gorgeous DA 50 yesterday. After I get the wrap around muffler I can go back to the front end and figure out the firewall modifications. Look ma', we have a fuselage.

Email from the AMA:

Dear members,
Contact Congress today and tell them to vote NO on the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, which can be read here. This bill is the result of closed-door negotiations between leadership of the House and Senate and includes significant modifications to the Special Rule for Model Aircraft, also known as Section 336. While some of the changes are positive, and include provisions that AMA has championed, overall the bill is problematic.
Model aviation hobbyists have been flying safely in the skies since before the FAA was even created. We're not the problem. Yet, this bill will deal a devastating blow to our hobby and the many local communities, charities and educational programs we support.
Given these additional, burdensome restrictions, we are asking AMA members to contact their members of Congress to express opposition to the bill, by clicking here:,1,GXTV33ZIoH9GhD_-RKkv8s3NbtpwEimJ9itGeYP-LZUTeTuK0QS-ngDf1fQGMwwtc3jpA0-fqbXYS20Yg2pv_5hIPlRE9lO1zcL6zl6SxBh843TXPVL36pqByHMM&typo=1

On the plus side Grapevine Lake is finally full. It came up almost two feet in the last couple of days. I can go chase the sand bass around again.

My last plane flight was on Sept. 8. I may need to drag out the buddy box and get some flight instruction.

Sadly the field is closed due to several lakes that have formed out there. Might be next week. Hmmm.

Just got a ballot for Dist 8 VP. Lawrence's name is the only one. No one running against him, but there might be a write-in or two. So, check Lawrence's name and send it in anyway. If you want Lawrence for Dist 8 VP, that is. Lane

Ya at least bring it out for static......we should be rain free for the next "Maybe" with some wind and sun...the field will dry out enough for this week end

I am making an effort to get some time on the simulator to help me since there has been so much down time

This entire year has been a challenge for me ......comparing amount of 2017 / 2018 video's  - less than 1/3rd stick time in 2018...uuuugh

Well guys the only way to use the field is if you are a duck. It is wet, soft, muddy and has water standing in several places. The flowage of water moved the center bridge ten feet to the north. The gate is locked until further notice.
