Flight performance Uninspiring, the flat plate wing gives unusual performance during the hand launch making consistent height difficult and transition to gliding flight unpredictable

28 Dec 11 - This model never performed very well and has suffered a little damage due to the fragile nature of Depron.  That, lack of space, and the purchase of a Dream-Flight Alula made me decided to recycle it and have striped the useful parts from it.

19 Jan 08 - This model was built by a friend as a copy of a well known lightweight glider, but with a 6 mm thick flat plate Depron wing.  The wing was a bit flexible so I added a thin carbon strip into a slot in the underside of the wing for a little reinforcement.  I also did a few modifications to the control linkages and tail fin mount.
