-BUILDERS CORNER-

A few members have undertaken the almost lost art of building their planes from kits "the old fashion way" this past winter.  The photos are teasers, as of course they are currently works in progress.  Stay tuned!  More pics to come!

Gord's Lazair-2017

Gord's father, Phil Tripe, and Pete Bonell (Brian Bonell's father), built  and sold the Lazair ultralight in the late 1970's. After seeing the old  photos, he decided to try and build a model of it. Using materials from  the Dollar store and some small quadcopter motors, he flew it for the  first time last Sunday. It was a success! Not an exact scale replica,  but it looks good nonetheless. And flies well, too.
