Here is a shot of my 99inch with the rudder counter balance removed and additional rudder area added.
I also modified the original airfoil by adding some "phillips entry"...it made a noticeable positive difference to the up wind performance and airspeed.
Not anything too pretty to look at but has been a blast to fly and learn and experiment about sailplane design.
I think that my next change will be to add a center section to incoroprate a much needed spoiller and also increase the dihedral.
A friend gave me a Gentle lady that needed a little TLC,and I noticed that it centered and circled in lift much nicer that my tlar.

I also would like to build a new fuse for the GL with a boom and x or v tail.
