Two piece wing slope discus launch glider (DLG) (1 min 20 sec)


The comments below in this thread show process of building a new wing and tail as well as pod construction for this glider.

In difference from the wing shown in the video the new wing has more complex (schuemann type, see below) planform.

The wing section varies from root to tip : undercambered at the root to lightly convex (almost flat-bottomed) at the tip.
