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.

this could be converted to electric, reduce elevator surface and rudder surface and shorten the nose as its too long, less weight on the tail end will equal shorter nose. well done :)
