I have designed three new rocket gliders that I'm now kitting as well through www.dynasoarrocketry.com.

The first is the Hypersonic, it's based on an X-15-3 Delta wing configuration proposed to push the airframe past mach 7 just before the project was cancelled. Uses 2" tubing and a plastic nose cone, a straight delta wing from depron. 38" long, 20" wingspan and 12.5 oz rtf.

Second is the Arc-Light a little more rakish, based on a 2" tube, this kit uses the nose cone and tubes from the cosmic interceptor rocket kit from estes and ads a lightly cranked delta wing and high t tail and drooped wingtips. Wingspan is 20" and length 38" and weight rtf is 12 oz. Again, a really nice flyer, the video shows it flying in about 9 mph winds and it handles boost and glide really well, hope you like them.

Third is the Pegasus, very similar to the Arc-Light but with a triple swept tail design.
