ps nice V2 actually it looks like a MX
I will fly it a few times like it is then cover the straight edges of the wing and tail with tape and also fill the curved edges with lightweight spackling. Then I will compare the flights.

I launched the Natter a couple of times today but instead of flying it wants to float down like a parachute. It floated so slow the controls had no affect because no air was flowing over them. I will try adding some weight to the nose. I want it to slightly dive nose down at peek of launch.

I did not like to way the nose looked on the ME-163. I cut the top off a bottle and slid it on the front of the ME-163. I think it looks better.

I installed a parachute in the Natter so it will always land soft even if I can not get it to glide. I finished painting. If I can not ever get it to glide I will remove all servos except the one for the parachute.
