It has been almost three weeks of continual rain except for today. I grabbed ESSO Nr.2, bungee launch set, drone, and head to the airfield nearby to test and practice launch by 80/20 bungee.

The famous Swiss vintage glider known as ESSO was designed by Arnold Degen in 1943 as a promotional model for the European branch of Exxon. I have chosen this model as another vintage project for incoming season which is close and will be actual in a few weeks sometime.
