Feather Plane 2 Chuck Glider

I share this on another thread but I decided to create it's own thread instead of hijacking the other one (https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/chuck-gliders.56030/#post-453177)

The Feather Plane 2 Chuck glider designed to be a base design that can inspire others to tweak and improve. Just like @FoamyDM has.

I'll update this post with more information and hopefully a build video soon.

I've found that it balances best with the trailing edge about 10 inches from the nose. It seams to fly best with a light toss instead of a hard throw.

Add some dihedral. This will let you launch in a bank and have the model roll out into glide at altitude. Trimming the vertical tail down a little will help with this.
