    Unhappy STEM Chuck Gliders

    Bummer! Of course that was not the answer I was hoping for but I can hardly complain considering how generous FT is. I trust their reasoning. Thanks Dan.

    Nevertheless this does reveal a bit of a void in our list of available plans. As a grandfather desiring to share the hobby frugally as I get to see the youngins this Thanksgiving I'll be looking to see what I can find so I can travel light (Racine, WI area) and leave them with something fun. Perhaps there'll be some budding flyers just waiting to come out.

    FoamyDM, thank you very much for the suggestion. I think that will do nicely. I can print the plans here, get them ready, and then get the foam in the wonderful land of cheese to do the build(s).

    You could also maybe think of the FT glider golf set. I am not sure of the plans are all in one pdf but the three plane plans are available as far as I know in Sponz list of published releases.

    I designed a new glider hook and a glider to go with it. Need to print the hook, build the prototype and get it flying. If it all works out, I will share all the files. Hopefully in time for your trip to the land of the cheese Jim.

    Ok so between all y'all (including Ben and FoamyDM) I got no excuse to not have something for the kiddos.

    Thanks guys.

    Some small tweaks needed for the plans, but I'm happy with it so far. Just dialing in the CG. Once I get the CG close, I will add some cavities to add a penny or two for balance.

    Also designed a Cesna 152 glider.



    It flies better than the Intruder right now. Also, check out the handle I designer for the launcher. It works perfectly and it's pretty comfortable to grip. I'm pretty happy with it.

    That's a nice launcher. Brings back memories. I flew a few of the dime store balsa planes when I was a kid. That launcher was a stick.
