I've finished and released my latest rc rocket glider kit, this is the simplest I can make construction and lightest weight given the components and still keeping a wing loading of around 6 oz/sq foot. The wings and tail are styled after the old Estes Dart but with a mid mounted wing. Maiden flights went really well with just about 3-4 clicks of down trim for boost and no added nose/tail weight needed. 11.25oz rtf with 23" wingspan and 38" length, comes with plastic nose cone with canopy/panel lines, pre-cut wing with spar slot cut and elevons installed, body tube slotted for the tail. Takes about 1.5 hours to assemble and install radio equipment.
