Still Waiting for my Quicky 500 Plans to show up in the mail, Sooo in the mean time, I am Building a Profile Foamie Rust buster before I try to fly this plane and a Gentle Lady 2 meter Glider From Plans, these builds should keep me nice and warm during the winter months

Niguel, Ask your Doctor if a Inversion Table will help you, Its a Device to where you hang upside down from your feet to remove pressure off your spine.
