We made a couple of handlaunches. The plane definitely wants to fly and looks majestic in the air, but a couple enhancements were required;
There is now a wood block for screwing in a bungee hook. This will simplify getting it in the air.
The simple servo rails broke loose so I made a servo tray.
The battery is now held inside a simple box.
A magnet holds the canopy in place against a wood screw, a trick from my friend Andy.
I made a simply cockpit, nothing like K2K's, but it adds some pizzazz!

Looking forward to the battery box and ballast
