By now I have had some feed back from interested parties about the two gliders currently under development by B.E.R.G. members, our goal was to develop these for our thermal league, but unfortunately they will not fly in the first contest but should be ready for the others.

To cut down on time the two progress reports will now be one as many of the activities are common to both the EMOYENE and the STILLETO.

Here are the latest photos

Completed moulds ,now we actually start building our first gliders.

After waxing, buffing,masking the moulds the colour is sprayed in.

Next we lay up epoxy glass laminates as per the design requirements.
I am not to sure what the inside of the secretive EMOYENE has.
The STILLETO is full of carbon.

STILLETO ready to pull from the mould and

EMOYENE out of the mould.

Product all ok, what a relief, in the next series of photos we cover the wings and a tailplane.
Stay posted.
