USS Forrestal RC Rocket glider


I wanted to do something similar to the old Estes USS Atlantis, which was a long star trek themed rocket, I needed to keep weight in the rear at a minimum for a rocket glider so used one warp pod instead of two, and then did shapes as star-trekkie as I could, modified the nose to have the deflector dish inset.

35" long, 22" wingspan, 2.6" diameter, uses MPF for wings and depron for the vertical support with a carbon rod for strength. Weight is 12 oz rtf , Flights were perfect right off the drawing board with no trim changes,
