This one did not fly good on the maiden. 150g AUW and no taper on leading and trailing edges. Very slow. After the third flight the wing started to fail.
1.5 DLG (1 min 18 sec)



I tapered the wing and added a spar. Launched faster .....straight into the bushes and breaking the boom

PS. Always re-check trims before re-maiden.

What part of the country do you live in if you don't mind me asking?

Southern Arizona.

I replaced the boom with a carbon arrow shaft. If I don't like how it flys I will put on a small motor and make a powered glider.
