I’ve had this glider for a long time, but never really flew it that much. One overcast day recently, Caleb and I put it to the test, and we got the event on camera. And it performed wonderfully.
I was going to draw plans for it, but then I had a better idea. Here are plans for a revised version that flies even better:
All fuse/pod parts are 1/16″ balsa, the boom is a 0.039″ carbon tube, and the flying surfaces are 1/32″ C grain balsa. You can build one of these in under an hour, and they fly great!
And you can get a .pdf of the plan that prints on an 11×17 sheet of paper. Enjoy, and let us know how it flies for you!
