Yes, in the 1930's people were so keen on record breaking, that they were prepared to go on flying after sunset...
Yes but this is 2021 and some idiot somewhere might be doing just that...... :shock:

Time for the End Game...the entire airframe is covered with Solartex. The translucent areas have two coats of clear lacquer initially, which is flatted with wet with 600 w&d, and then another single coat of lacquer, mixed with some matting agent, applied over the top. After that, the trim colours can be applied. The fuselage is sprayed with 2-pack primer, flatted, and top-coated with the main and trim colours, also mixed with matting agent...

Didn’t that go the same way as the half crown in 1971?

In action, the MO2a has no vices, and on a calm day on the flat, seems to fly at near scale speed. It's hard to quantify if the flaps make much difference, but you certainly don't need them landing into a strong wind, as the glider darn nearly stops in mid air. The drop off dolly is mixed with the spoilers so you don't have to take your hands off the sticks during take off.
