Flying an unpowered sailplane off the Blue Ridge Mountains. This was an excellent day.
The Radio Chucker was my attempt at making the equivalent of a cheap, toystore balsa model with radio control. It flew in one thermal, but is only about as efficient as its inspiration.
Hidama is a high-performance, 1m span sailplane. Or, it was. All of these are like sand mandalas; a process, not a thing. That is, I crashed it.
Jet Jaguar was the first bike that I built to spec, rather than from whatever parts I could find. I lost it at the precise moment that I got a broken rib.
Tyger Tyger is my current ride, originally built with the remains of Jet Jaguar. By now, though most of its parts have been replaced. Is it still the same bike? At what point wasn’t it?
