I herewith nominate this for my “post of year.“
Glad you’ve recovered from the initial shock of the wrist injury and seen sense to continue!
Thought you might appreciate a different wooden structure. It’s a Flitzer Z1S, built with sitka spruce and birch ply (mostly 1mm). Constructed over around 10 years from plans, it flew for the first time at the end of August. Cruise is 100 mph and she’s fully aerobatic. See YouTube G-ECVZ first flight and Z1S flight.

Want to go for a flight over the English countryside? All I gotta say is holy shit! Vic, you da man!
