Bob,
Truly wish you all the best in your recovery.  I too, just recovered from pneumonia and surgery that has altered my life.  It seems everyone has gotten ill or has to undergo treatment at the same time.  Neo's lumbar surgery, my pneumonia, your back surgery, and so on.  Wow.  Seems like all the planets lined up for something here.  I trust that your back surgery has gone well and you're on your way to a smooth recovery.  You've come this far in Life.  Good news to know you've been open about it and shared this with the group.   I feel like we're family.  Thank you.  Gary (Skye)

Sorry to hear that about the knee. The wife's give her fits. Has been told total knee is suggested but we went with stem cell injections (from her) into the joints and 3 years later things are looking better. I'm beginning work on a Herr DVII. Hope to post soon.

neoflight, I like the Yardbird. It just looks like a good flier.

The back is healing good, gut the left knee is starting to give problems. Guess the body is falling apart. Cheesy

MORE BUILDING AND MORE FLYING TO BE DONE HERE.

Greetings BG! I too am recovering from lumbar surgery, a bit over a year now but wow...has it been a rough road. I'm new to free flight side of modelling but my own opinion sides with the Yardbird. The lines are more aesthetic. Wishing you well in your recuperation.

They definitely look like sisters...the square bird with a bit larger span at 19".  I like the bigger span models, just my personal preferrence.  I think they might have an easier chance of flying and a bit more stability.

There are (3) teenagers studing the photos and plans that Tom supplied and try to build the vertical build board. i am trying to decide on one or two airplanes to build.

i came across (2) Sherman Gillespie's designs that really look good.

YARD BIRD (1954)
SQUARE BIRD (1956)
