The Italian Job: Graecalis Aerobatic Glider

Looking good Chris. Just wondering if adding capping strips of perhaps 64th ply onto the faces of the cut outs would be a worthwhile addition to stop the wood splitting down the grain.

Looks terrific, Chris. My 'winter' job was supposed to be building mine, but it looks like it might be winter-spring-summer.

your Graecalis can not loose the "spring-summer season 2014"!!!!

the wind is for every glider like the water for the plants .... after so much drought could die

Most impressive work Chris, well done, your Graecalis looks 'Cracking' :drool:

I've just watched your vid B). Looks from your flying that you felt very happy with the model and your set up etc very quickly. 9 months of hard work building her has been well worth it. I love the shape of the Graecalis and with the backdrop of  Caher Conree during those 'big aero's' it looks stunning.

Huge congrats Chris , more vid asap please  :thumbsup:

Thanks Gromit :) !

 

Please if you don't mind don't post in this thread - I tried to get the spelling of the heading corrected from "Greacalis" to "Graecalis", instead it's turned into "Greacalsi", hence I started the new thread.....
