Hopefully there will be lots of posts here from people asking questions as well as post photos and build threads for gliders.

How well does your Space Plane glide Bob? I never got past trimming mine before it got crunched. It's repairable, but on the back burner.

Keep it on that burner long and it *won't* be repairable!

(Oh, I just slay myself sometimes...)

Actually, it glides fairly well most of the time. It's the boost that sometimes gets exciting, especially with any kind of wind.

The spin tabs on the rudders don't really make it spin. It's more like giant barrel rolls. I could improve the boost with more nose weight but haven't gotten around to it.

I have the nose cone friction fit with some tape so I could add weight if needed but I did a lousy job of gluing in the bulkhead. On one flight, one of the "energetic" ejection charges blew the bulkhead and nose cone off the front. I was able to find the nose cone and it's since been repaired.

The elastic that pulls up the elevons could be better. Sometimes one of the elevons doesn't get pulled tight against the stop and the glide suffers.

My old Spaceplane boosted better and had a good glide until a shotgun ejection charge blew part of the elevon and elevon stops off.
