Leah flies 373Y

Last night after work we went out to Sunflower and put 3Y together.  We were hoping to get Leah a few flights in the glider before we take it to Ulysses for the weekend.  Ended up with a late start of course but got her in the air shortly after 7.  She had a good flight overall and *almost* managed a 30 minute soaring flight.  She never managed to get back above release altitude but there was a lot of zero sink and weak lift that she took advantage of.  All in all, a lot of fun.

3Y is back home now, hopefully this week I can do a little tinkering with it and the trailer in prep for Ulysses this weekend.

Haven't had a chance to do much on 3T this week although the hardware for the control cables are in the mail.
