Glide tests (without a motor) are good so far, but I'll have to wait a couple of months to fly it outside. We have a couple feet of snow on the ground.

Normally, outdoors, I'm an RC guy, but I can't wait to try my first outdoor free flight build.
Great looking airplane! You should think about carving a prop for it. It's not as hard as you may think. Good call on that stab too, I never had luck with the two piece stabs...pain to get straight and really weak.
