Decided to go another route with the Kadet Junior that the Club was given last year.

It's going through what I hope will be an upgrade, with a new built up wing that has ailerons. Also a complete change of covering is under go as well.

Hopefully when all is done, this Kadet Hybrid will perform even better than before, and if so it will be sold off, complete with radio and flight pack, with the money being put toward a portable Club BBQ.

Here are some pics,

Very nice Bill. Really like the color scheme.
