Subject: Re: Bug Redesign
Chris, Hi. It's good to hear from raincityflier. Reminds me of the early days of the Little Nipper design. You are probably right about the name change. Would you mind if I submitted your modified Bug's name for this? You called your Bug/Nipper the Bugger. Would the group consider calling the new design's name the Bugger? Any other suggestions? The skyshark 2p was great but unfortunately Skyshark went out of business and it's not available anymore.

It was mentioned that the basics of most DLG's are similar, just named differently. This should be the same as long and you leave out the copyrighted name. You could even have a naming contest on this list with the winner getting the first set of plans! > > I scratch built a bug hybrid years ago as my first solo build and it was a blast. My kids couldn't even break it. It had the longer spars, extra rib, cruciform tail, etc. My only two cents to add is that I'd stay away from pultruded CF booms as they tend to be heavy and the small OD still leaves them kind of whippy for SAL or DLG launching. My favorite has always been the Skyshark 2P. > > Sign me up for a tiled PDF when you are done! > > Thanks again, > > Chris in Seattle >
