Carbonette High Ceiling Elastic Launched Glider 2020 (3 pack)

(3 customer reviews)




Build 3 gliders from this kit!

Carbonette ELG is a variant of our popular outdoor glider adapted to meet the 2019/2020 Science Olympiad Elastic Launched Glider rules and fly in high Cat II and Cat III AMA contests. This is a light, clean airplane designed to reach the higher ceilings where some contests will be held (up to 80′ ceilings) which the Protégé cannot achieve.

This is NOT a low ceiling glider and cannot perform at the Protégé’s level in sub-35′ ceilings. It is not capable of being built to the 3 minimum weight, so if you are flying in typical gymnasiums, you should buy the Protégé instead.

Don’t forget a launcher! Or get the ultimate launcher!

    I bought the 3 pack, mostly because it’s been a while since I’ve done any type of aeromodeling, plus then I get extra pieces. Also, I found out that my modeling skills were a little rusty, but this kit is fairly straightforward to build. I am finding the trimming to be a little more of a challenge, but your videos definitely help, not only with the trimming but the build as well. I built two of the 3 already….I realized there were a few small errors that I made building the first one that I figured out and fixed during the building of the second one. The second one I made flew great after I played with the launch angle and pitch, then I shredded the stabilizer on the back of my hand on one launch, so I have to come up with a fix for that. I DO plan on ordering another kit in the near future.

    It is usually heavier than the protege’s, but it’s good overall. This is excellent glider to start with.

    I bought the 3 pack. They all fly very well. One of the gliders was completed with only ~6 gram, which flew like a charm. I lost this one in the thermal in an early morning (~ 8am, only very very light breeze). The other two gliders weight about ~ 8 gram. They flew well, but definitely not as graceful as the one that is gone. In short, this is an excellent kit with high quality materials.
