He's at it again!  In early 2016, Joe sent the following:

"Attached are first pictures of my newest delta.  It is electric, powered with a Hacker motor on 8 cells.  Will probably have its first flight next weekend if the Miami weather improves."

A few months later, Joe sent a flight report:

"The inaugural flight ended with a sever pancake on the side of the runway.  Some damage but easily repaired.  After confirming that I had miscalculated the CG location and that this made the delta nearly unstable, I added nearly one pound on the nose and now it flies the way it was meant to be.  Eventually, I will relocate the batteries to recover the added weight.  Next weekend I will fly again to see how well it can do it."
