Since I have 2 Picas now I went looking for a case to carry these portable rockets in a nice compact package.
My 2nd Pica Pitcheron Sloper
I liked my first Pica so much that I got a second plane from Tim. The new plane is a glass version instead of a carbon plane but it seems fine to me. The pix don’t do the color justice but it is orange and blue. I may add a second orange stripe to the bottom of the wing. I was not sure how it would look but now that I have it I think the additional stripe will balance it out nicely. Stock Krylon color so that should be easy.
Pica Pitcheron Sloper
I finally got my Pica pitcheron sloper done and in the air. Considering it took all of about an hour to get the gear installed and the radio programmed, I am a goof for waiting so long to get this cool pitcheron slope plane in the air. The only other work I did to get it ready was to sand the leading edge a bit where the Mylars had left a bit of a ridge. From past experience with my own bagged planes as well as those from other builders, this is a good performance trick to get the most out of the airfoil and the plane.
