Yeah, that's my problem. I was so excited about this thread, I missed the 3mm!! thickness of foam. I used 6 MM on the bay and part of fuse and elevons, guess what, I'm easily twice as heavy. The "glide rate" is very heavy, really drops quickly. So instead of crying over spilled milk, or thick foam, I decided to add some wing area on the leading edge to create more lift. I'll give it a shot in the AM and if this fails, I'll make a new one out of 3MM foam.

First be sure than be quick!
