JLG/HLG Tantrum by Off the Ground Models $100
Found this old hand launch glider hanging in the rafters. Looks pretty cool to throw around the school or park but as it is has a lot of dust on it, could use new covering (just cuz its not beautiful but it IS functional), & some tlc. Needs the wood biscuit/wing release replaced and electronics. (EZ~piece of wood with screw in the middle) Looks like Rudder & Elevator linkages are pretty much there. Spring loaded wings folded are 22” wide then 42” when open. Wood is really good condition, no breaks that I can see. Designed to be grenade/javelin launched with the wing tips stowed to create a fully symmetrical airfoil and thus less drag for the ascent. A blip of down elevator levels it off and deploys the wing. Also has a hook for a high start as well as a finger hole. Possible to make as a rocket launched glider? I dunno but I have no time for it so offering it up here if anyone is interested.
