I have built the Hammer Down Catapult glider I designed with two groups now, I made up a kit for them. The wing was created, they had to cut out pieces with scissors and glue everything together, this takes around 20 minutes or so. An experienced person could put this together in 5 minutes.

We launched them off a high ledge in a room with a ceiling that might be 50 feet high. Some glided really well and some needed more trim. The kids were also hand chucking the gliders. For the most part the gliders hold up to a good amount of abuse. It seems to me this is a good step up from the FPG-9 glider.
