This is my HLG I built up using the Canardly plans

http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_plans/details.php?image_id=4075&mode=search

It was a fun plane that gathered lots of attention out side. I ended up CA'ing a hook onto the bottom about half way and using a longer rubber band to launch it.

I would try and launch at a steep angle across the wind with a slight tilt into. This would (ideally) lead to a high loop glide path where on the downside of the loop it would straighten out and land nicely.

this plane is now RIP after letting it slip out of my fingers when the rubber band was taught.

I am thinking though of scaling up these plans (50%? 100%), but I am working on the flicka now so after that.
