Air Tractor AT-502 Chuck Glider (Beta 1.0) - A small but floaty little glider. Need some experienced help to tweak a few things.

I was inspired recently by an Air Tractor AT-502B flying low over my backyard a lot recently, so I decided to CAD up my own!

Then I made up this mini one as a chuck glider for my little brother who is obsessed over aviation at the age of 2.

I need some help getting the CG placement correct and keeping it from flying inverted (more bottom weight, like landing gear, maybe?) and any other tips if you do...

Ive been thinking lately about making one of these too. I was going to just help on yours here, but I started playing in inkscape and was having so much fun that I just did the whole thing:D

He glides pretty good for a prototype. Kid approved.
PS You should put some full pictures of yours on the overview.

Ive been meaning to post these for a while. This is an improved version of the Dusty pictured above. Its more durable and there is room for eyes.:geek: Its half a board longways. Im not 100% sure on the coins. Mine was pretty good with 21 or 30 cents, but I left a little door on a front side piece so I could start with 3 pennies and swapped one for a dime until it stalled.
