Been sometime since I last posted in this forum. Thought of sharing these CLGs I built late last year mainly for indoor flying at a nearby mall. Fly consistently for 40+ seconds.

It flies well - very smooth and stable. You didn't launch from the mezzanine balcony by any chance Smiley

That's a very quiet shopping mall - what luck to have such a nice high deserted indoor area to fly.

Thanks John, it was launched from ground and due to the light and fragile structure of the glider, managed to launched it up to a max height of about 35 - 40ft.

The structure of the glider is not reinforced with any carbon strips or tow. The fuselage is made of higher density balsa and the flaps are from thinly sliced foam. AUW is approximately 2.3 to 2.4g.

I've built a WIF 7 (2.4g) and had lots of fun with it. Now I'm helping a Science Olympiad team and am thinking about designing a version of WIF 7 for the event. 30 cm span 3.5g minimum weight. I thought I would use a 2mm carbon rod for the fuselage, and try an unreinforced wing and stab. Any thoughts Bill?

I'm not sure about the 2mm rod. I think I would prefer a tube to lighten the tail but I really haven't played with the numbers yet. I have some tubes I got from Aliexpress that might be suitable but again I haven't actually tried anything yet.

2mm tube is relatively easy to get hold of.
If you are careful you can sand it to a gentle taper, but be careful not to crush it.

Awesome!  those are impressive times for your gliders.   do you know what thickness/type material you are using for the flaps?
