    I've been gone for awhile and I'm back. It was great to see the finish to this plane and all the flights. Most inspiring! Great job!

    That 'nervous' pilot's stick hand makes me laugh out loud every time! Great job and awesome sailplane!

    What happened I didn't see the pilot pull the release? Nice vid.

    The more times there is air under the wings of the Ka-3 the more comfortable it feels. At present it is at 9 flights with two aerotow events left this year.
    Here is the flight video from the PASS event held last weekend. Enjoy!

    Spent time flying ridge with the Ka-3 at the Agassiz aerotow this past weekend. Wind that blows into the bowl provides excellent ridge soaring conditions.

    I'm hoping for a few more photos of it in flight from the next aerotow later this month. Will post.

    Photos like that are the reason I love vintage ragwings! Look at it glow!

    Now that the Ka-3 is finally trimmed out it almost flies it's self. Here are a few photos from the event this past weekend.

    ARUP, I'm looking forward to a lot less excitement at the Yakima Aerotow next weekend, now that all the elevator trimming is completed. An angle block for the camera mount was made to provide an upper view of the front wind screen. Should be close to what the pilot will see, just need to add a yaw string yet.
