After having polished it with 500 grit paper !
I have decided Smiley
This bird is much too delicate and ladylike to handle the rigors of what I would call a catapult plane Smiley
The idea of a good catapult plane to me , is something you can zing it on up there and it will fly fly fly Smiley
Circles are nice
I do not care much about pattern flying in dead air !
I find dead air flying boring , like a bird in a cage , a goldfish in a bowl !
Planes should fly in the sky and a sailboat should be upon a blustery sea !
 Though I would like a plane to circle back so I do not have to walk so far !
I am looking to build something that I can zing on up there and it will fly fly fly Smiley
This HL Glider  is not stout enough I do not think !
One such as this might be good for something !
Just not the something I am looking for !
Maybe when conditions improve but now it is wet and windy here

It's strength might surprise you. It's a pity the weather doesn't give you a chance for a trial flight. it looks quite neat.

OZPAF Tnx for the rely

I will wait till good weather conditions get good before I even consider flying this bird

I have still to put a coat of urethane on but that is about it

Still have many days of rain in the forecast

I need to get some lighter rubber for this plane

Good to hear from you John

Best to you Smiley
