Thanks. Yes, I did observe if the model tends to pull too tight loop, and it did not. I agree the wing seems to have a lot of angle there, but actually (not seen in the picture) the tail also has some positive AoA (which crept in after some repair). Moreover the higher decalage is maybe needed to counteract the aeroelastic tendency to bunt? I need to build a new, stiffer fuselage to my CLG-150 and see if it works more logically.

Is there an official class for the (unlimited) indoor CLG?

 
Interesting question...

Unlimited Catapult Launch Glider (UCLG) is an official AMA event. It's not really unlimited b/c there is a 100si wing area limit.

Ok, so there is one in the US. But there is no international one I suppose?

Not for FAI. There may be local classes. Mikhail has published a picture of a F1N-300. I don't know who has the responsibility for administering that class. He told me the only rule was 300mm wingspan limit.

Has the FAI given consideration for an indoor catapult glider class?

Never heard that FAI freeflight subcommittee is talking about catapult gliders, not sporty enough Huh
I think F1N (handlaunch) is the most you can get.

A catapult class would be good for keeping some old timers (like me) around. There's also a substantial percentage of people who grow up without learning how to throw anything. Some of those people are totally befuddled about how to throw a glider.

Your perfectly right, but to have fun with CLG you dont need a world championship class by FAI. Rules at local, or the most national, level are good enough.
