First Flicka ever...First plane with a airfoil.

Flies nice despite missing the note on the instructions about a one piece wing! If thrown high, it will drop about 25% from top of arc, gain lift and then go about 100'. However, if i mess up the throw it has a high lawn dart probability. A gentle dart like toss will have it doing a slow right turn with very little proposing. My hunch is that the right turn is due to the whole two piece wing thing and probably having just a bit of fuzzyness in the alignment!

Is there any general guidelines on converting to CLG? My shoulder doesn't like throwing and the kiddos want to try it. I was thinking about a crossbow-esque mechanism for launching...
