The last part of this video shows one of my gliders made from foam plates and a plastic straw flying after a discuss launch.  I found it amazing that the glider will even launch in this manner. Getting it to transition after the launch has been tricky. Maybe something is flexing after all the stress. The flight in the video is one of the best, often it will dive into the ground after the launch.
