Xplorer 3.8 spread tow

i haven't taken any pics of gliders in awhile, but this one was to pretty.

customer wasn't concerned about going ultra light weight on the build, so we used 761Z servos in frames, and steel 4-40 linkage on flaps.
same servos on ailerons, glued in and steel 2-56 linkage.

AUW 73oz. at 108mm c/g.

i know i could easily get another 2-3oz. removed from one of these by using lighter gear.

either way, those are very impressive numbers for such a big plane.
