SSSOur April General Meeting was well attended and a big success. Al Salas, of the Sierra Silent Soarers club regaled us information about his passion: making and flying radio controlled gliders.

Al spoke about the construction techniques and flying challenges involved in making the gliders as light as possible while also making them as strong as possible. He showed several different types of plane parts made with materials ranging from balsa wood to hi tech plastics. His background and experience in this field of making and flying RC airplanes made for a very interesting presentation.
