I do crazy things like build rubber-band-powered airplanes.
I don't just build them though ... no ... this particular plane here is made of salvaged pine that I cut and carved into tiny strips that made the body of the plane. Old school.
This plane is a little heavier than its balsa wood kin, so it needs a bigger engine, which means more rubber-bands.
This plane has a purchased propeller, though I have carved those by hand as well! Crazy, eh?
Anyway ... it's calm today, sunny too, so despite the cold I'm on my way out now for the test flight. Later!
