space 1,

If i lose thrust, it is a very little.. the actual prototype it is very fast, i think fast enough for a glider, hehehe

Stupot46,

Maybe i will lost foam, in my prototype i use the foam as internal structure for edf, battery, and exit tube...

Humbertomelo - a beautiful design with great lines.

Is this the same glider that you videoed a while back?

If it is then you wouldn't need to worry too much about loss of thrust !

Looking forward to the rest of the build.
