CLIMBING IN A GUST OF WIND This morning at about 10:00 AM, the winds and gusts were getting too strong, blowing in through the open end of the Cricket Wicket Field - 8 mph from the North gusting to 12 mph, 64 deg F, and even with 63% humidity, the tissue was getting moist and wavy from the dew evaporating - hence, the best flights were 25, 22, and 29 seconds on 1050 stretch winds with a stooge and winder using two strands of brand new 1/8" rubber, each strand 15" long (prop hook to rear motor peg is 7 inches). But, it was still nice to see it in slow flight against the wind, almost sitting still in the air like a hummingbird ...

18" Dumas AIR CAMPER - for added strength, I added two "spacer doublers", double white glued between the Cabane struts and along the wing. I used the elastics to hold a "positioning plank" in order to locate the "spacer doublers" - I then just slid out the positioning plank, and let the doublers dry.

Elastics are used to hold the wing down into position. I then used 5 min Epoxy to glue the flying struts at their 4 locations on the fuse, and to glue the 2 forward cabane struts that were broken off at the wing.
