    Indianapolis in 46239
    Current / Future projects:
    In the planning stage to build a F8F Bearcat 5/8 scale in an ultra light configuration. I do not know if this can really work
    Past Projects:
    Built one Rag Wing project (RW-11) based. Not yet flown. May not want to fly it because of the high pitching motion of the GOE384 airfoil that I chose because of its high CL.
    Served in the US Navy 1954 - 1958.
    Attended CMU 1958- 1962. Graduated with majors in mathematics and Physics. Married a lovely lady named Linda on January 27, 1962. Been together 49+ years.

    WWII Navy fighter planes built as ultra light aircraft. Like building using wood and fabric. Built an ultra light with all wood members including wing ribs laminated together. For the ribs, laminated 1/8in x 1/4in together to make 1/4" x 1/4" members
