Thanks, no I ordered it from Mountain Models direct. It was about $85.00 dollars and it is all laser cut. It should be quick. Randy

Speaking of the Super Sniffer, how is that plane flying these days? Might there be a chance of seeing it fly?

Has anyone used these in their airplanes? I'm thinking of using them for the ailerons in the Jester. http://www.irfmachineworks.com/g2rds/

I think I will try these for the ailerons in the Jester. They should work and be drag and weed free on landing. Something new and the reviews show them to be favorable.

I've been curious about those for years, so I'm glad you'll be trying them out.

It's so much fun to change a perfectly good design! Right now, subject to change, I've heard that spoilerons don't work too well on a 2 meter glider. So, i think I'll keep the spoilers and have ailerons for lateral/roll control for the aero-tow. That is if I can find someone I trust to tow me up! Now there's a challenge!

Well, it sure isn't me. Yeah, I can see me contributing to the demise of two airplanes if I tried to tow you. I'll bet that Mclain is good enough to fly the tow plane.
