Gluing and Shipping

by Mathew Lippincott

All Airpup components are finished and delivered— The sewn wings just need to be glued to the balloon envelopes and the carbon fiber spars must be cut to length.

Things are largely on schedule. I did divert some of the time I would have spent gluing and shipping Airpups to make and fly large protest banners over Portland and Salem on every windy day last month.

Let me know if your address has changed between filling out your backer survey and now, as shipping is eminent.
