Come fly with Mark in the lovely San Francisco East Bay!

My neighbor is moving from San Francisco to join a startup in Chicago. Weird, right? and Brrr!
But he very kindly gave me this sailboat, which has been sitting in his garage for a long time. What a splendid fellow!
It needs to be cleaned up, but all the parts seem to be in place and the rigging seems intact. Once I wrap the ArrBot, I'll give it a go and report back here. Initial impression: those are some pretty massive servos!
And not just a pretty yellow sailboat, but a glider as well! There's a few tears in the covering, but I'll take it to the Concord Model Engineers and see what they have to say about it.
