I extended my fuse 3.5 inches for a total length of 26.5 in. The tail control surfaces I made about an inch longer length. (I like bigger control surfaces). Other than that all else the same. I also added more detail info on my post.

Take a look at this thread. The silhouette could be made more exact but it is a flat wing that has some possibilties and flies great for what it is.

Thanks Lee,

I love flying this model. Very simple to build. Here are some photo's.
The silhouette on the original design (Plans posted) were more life like.
I built the "Extreme" but I will build the original design when time permits.

I love this thread!!!

Thanks for your comments.

It would work as a slope glider, but I don't have a good slope where I live.
