  • I took your recommendations and built a better glider. It flies MUCH better than the previous version. Check it out:

  • I made an episode (Episode 5) as a how-to on how I built the glider in Episode 4.

    I'm almost done with Episode 6 where I took your recommendations and build a better glider.

    Thanks for the advice!
  • I built and flew the glider designed in Episode 2. The glider flew fine, but I had a hard time finding the right location for the center of gravity.

    Next time I’m going to shift the wing further back to allow for easier CG adjustment, add more weight so drag doesn’t overcome its momentum as easily, and make some kind of shock absorber to the nose so it can survive more than a few crashes.

    What do you think? What do you do to find the center of gravity?
