As a project last summer, I made a balsa 2m sailplane. It was very nicely built and finished, all blue and white. I hand-cut all the pieces with an exacto knife. Then, I used CA to clue it all together. I finished it off with a blue solarfilm heat shrink covering. I tested the CG in the living room before going outside. I got ready, faced the wind, threw...and it flew a little bit then face planted straight into the ground! It was kind of sad seeing a few months of cutting and gluing splinter and die. But, I started a big project going of trying to restore it. It was very a dramatic crash!
