-Neil Dennis - Denny Dart II
|Neil Dennis (wombat) Denny Dart|
|The bare bones of the original Denny Dart.||Denny Dart passing close overhead
creates neat effect.
|Weather was still warm enough for outdoor
flying in Minnesota.

|Denny Dart II on a warm January day in Minnesota.||
Yes, it really is getting higher.
|Best flight indoors 1:09 - on an earlier flight the plane had become stuck on a high ledge at 44 seconds. At that point I knew that breaking one minute indoors was easily within reach. But it took several more flights before breaking a minute because of bad hits to the ceiling.|
Jun From Manila and the Skinny Cat
|Skinny Cat flew very well outside also.||The hill is farther away than it looks.|
|Pictures of Skinny Cat that Jun had sent me.||Jun got the best performance on 7" prop.|
|The wing is built flat and tip dihedral is cut into wing after covering.||The ribs are a combination of 1/16" square bottom and 1/16" sheet rib on top.|
|Wrinkled tissue was used on all surfaces to reduce warping. When tips are glued per plan, automatic washout is created.||My Skinny Cat basks in the sun coming in the windows.|
Geoff Bower and the EZP (Easy Plane)
Wish I had Geoff's indoor flying site!

|Adjust wing with enough positive incidence to slow speed down and extend duration.||My best flight with EZP under 22 foot ceiling was 1:30.|
Air Hare - Ben Thomson and Lee Wang
|Generous dihedral seen from this angle.||A couple more turns and it would be rafter banging time.|
