Love to make gliders but I have a hard time testing them cause I don't like to fly in front of people until I know they will fly good... Is that an issue for anybody else out there?

same here, i just don't want to be bugged by folks asking me what/why/how/cost/etc... i'm doing while getting brand new FF or RC model going.

Their safety is also a paramount concern for me also besides my heightened emotions dealing with a new creation.

I drive about 5 miles to a wide open soccer field during the week days to get the me and the model safe and sane.

After that i'm ok around others with a "near new" model and really do believe they want me to succeed with or without their advice.

Stick to it, john s.

I know the feeling! Sometimes breaking in a new plane was literally that - breaking it! I used to go to the local park and do my test gliding before going to the flying field. At least there was grass at the park. Now days I don't care!

It feels like I'm in a heightened sense of focus when flying/testing and having others around is just a distraction in the whole process. I really shouldn't care about it so much but it definitely has an effect on me.

No, it isn't an issue for me. I crash planes by myself and with people around!

It has never been a problem for me.
Fly when time and space are available, new or not.

I'm an equal opportunity crasher in public. Milo
