Stuart's Stinger tow plane. Ready just in time. I hear that Something Happened to Adrian's Ultra Stick

Ken built a second scale Slingsby Sky.

It flew very well considering that the pilot only had one hand.

Here's a short clip of it's maiden flight. the wind was quite strong and across the runway. Skillful flying by both pilots.
The landing is actually from the second flight. On the first he came in true Airshow style -- fast, low and steeply banked between the water tanks and the clubhouse roof. We asked him to do it again but he thought once was enough.
