Since I've been spending so much time ranting on the APlane thread I thought I'd better post an update on the Ranger. I'm not proud of it but I decided to go with store bought AS&S Spruce for the longerons, spar caps and geodesic. I wanted to use lumber yard Pine and Doug Fir but I got lazy. That should be enough Spruce for two or three Rangers. Also the wing trailing edges and the rudder tube. Since there's really not enough room in my garage to build two airplanes (and the Neirrh was there first) I'm going to do the actual building out at the chapter hangar, I'm there every day anyway.. We're cleaning up from our Waiex build but that should be done this week, then I can move this stuff out there and actually start building ...and have enough room to have a reasonable chance of success.
